Paper Abstract

We introduce the new concept of orientation Zernike polynomials, a base function representation of retardation and diattenuation in close analogy to the wavefront description by scalar Zernike polynomials. We show that the orientation Zernike polynomials provide a complete and systematic description of vector imaging using high numerical aperture lithography lenses and, hence, a basis for an in depth understanding of both polarized and unpolarized imaging, and its modeling.
