Abstract

A novel solution to problematic ghost images is implemented by using tilted lens elements with polynomial surfaces. Tilting the lens surfaces sends reflections out of the imaging path. The nonrotationally symmetric polynomial surfaces correct aberrations caused by tilts. The complex lens surfaces are fabricated by using gray-scale lithographic patterning of hybrid solgel glass.
