Abstract

We report a novel aspheric holographic optical element, the holographic axilens, for achieving extended focal depth while keeping high lateral resolution. The element is designed according to special optimization techniques and recorded as a computer-generated hologram. The results for a specific element, which has a depth of focus of 30 mm, a lateral resolution of 80 μm, a focal length of 1250 mm, and a diameter of 12.5 mm at a wavelength of 633 nm, are presented.
