Abstract

We unveil a relationship between generating a point spread function with a pair of conjugate phase elements and visualizing the modulation transfer function (MTF) of a single phase element for a variable focus error, at a tunable spatial frequency. We show that the defocused MTF of a pair of conjugate phase elements can be expressed as the modulus of the second order ambiguity function of a single phase element. Finally, we propose a tunable wavefront coding technique with a pair of quartic (4th power) conjugate phase elements.
