Abstract

We consider diffraction by pixelated lenses when the lens size is significantly smaller than the diffraction pattern of single pixels. In that case, the diffraction orders show shapes that have not been identified in earlier studies and that are quite sensitive to the pixel filling ratio as well as to decentering.
