Abstract

The performance characteristics of focusing diffractive mirrors designed with various methods are evaluated by using the rigorous boundary element method. Quantitative results are presented for (1) conventional-zero-thickness mirror designs, (2) alternative-zero-thickness designs that incorporate an off-axis correction factor and (3) finite-thickness designs. For TM polarization, the mirrors designed by using the alternative-zero-thickness method perform considerably worse than those designed by using the conventional-zero-thickness method, which contradicts predictions made in an earlier paper [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 17, 1132 (2000)].
