Paper Abstract

The imaging quality of holographic lenses depends on parameters that include the shape of a holographic lens surface or an input pupil position. Based on the formulas for third-order aberration coefficients derived for such cases, conditions that ensure the correction of aperture and field aberrations are given. The possibility of joint correction of spherical aberration, coma, and astigmatism is discussed. The formulas presented are illustrated with a number of examples; two types of holo-lenses are taken into account: imaging and focusing. For imaging quality assessment an aberration spot calculation method based on numerical evaluation of an appropriate diffraction integral is used. The results of this method are compared with the results of imaging quality estimation using the geometrical ray tracing method.
