A procedure for designing pupil functions for four-channel, three-channel, and two-channel syntheses of complex incoherent point-spread functions is presented. This procedure is then generalized for synthesis of multiple bipolar point-spread functions. Examples of pupil-function design for complex syntheses are also presented.
