Abstract

We show that phase aberrations in an imaging system can be mitigated using binary-amplitude masks that reduce destructive interference in the image spatial frequency domain. Appropriately designed masks increase the magnitude of the optical transfer function and prevent nulls. This offers a low-cost, transmission-mode alternative to phase correction as used in active and adaptive optics, without a restriction on the waveband of operation.
