Abstract

The point spread function (PSF) of a wavefront coding (WFC) system with a cubic phase mask is analyzed with a wide viewing angle based on physical optics for what is believed to be the first time. Two coordinate transformations are made to generate a pupil function, from which we obtain the encoded PSF of the WFC system with defocus parameters W 020 and object angles α and β. The encoded PSFs are further side extended as the object angles get wider. When α β < 0 , the included angle Φ of encoded PSF will skew to an obtuse angle. When α β = 0 , Φ remains orthogonal; when α β > 0 , Φ will skew to an acute angle. Furthermore, the effect of skew and side extension is even symmetric about W 020 . As a result, the wide viewing angle has a bad effect on the imaging quality of the WFC system.
