Abstract

This paper presents convenient expressions for the monochromatic primary aberrations of a diffractive lens on a spherical substrate having a nonunity refractive index. Sets of nomographs that provide ready estimates for these aberrations are also given. This analysis facilitates structural design of diffractive lenses in various applications—where they are used as stand-alone devices or as one or more components in a multicomponent system.
