Abstract

We present multifractal zone plates (MFZPs) as what is to our knowledge a new family of diffractive lenses whose structure is based on the combination of fractal zone plates (FZPs) of different orders. The typical result is a composite of two FZPs with the central one having a first-order focal length f surrounded by outer zones with a third-order focal length f. The focusing properties of different members of this family are examined and compared with conventional composite Fresnel zone plates. It is shown that MFZPs improve the axial resolution and also give better performance under polychromatic illumination.
