Abstract

The design theory presented describes characteristic features of thin diffractive elements. In particular it permits the derivation of upper bounds of the diffraction efficiency of diffractive elements. These bounds are independent of the calculation method used to obtain the diffractive elements. The consequences of the results for diffractive optics are briefly discussed.
