We study the diffraction fields in a hybrid diffractive–gradient-index element composed of an amplitude zone plate and a quarter-pitch Selfoc gradient-index lens under uniform illumination. Focal positions of the diffractive orders and zone-plate diffraction efficiencies are measured, thereby validating the existing theoretical results.
