Paper Abstract

This paper describes optical systems which compensate for the wavelength dispersion and distortion that arise in diffractive fan-out elements. Two approaches are investigated, a space variant and a space invariant. In the space variant approach, microlenses or diffractive optical elements were introduced in the system correcting the wavefronts. In the space invariant approach refractive and diffractive lenses compensates for the chromatic aberrations and shifts in beam direction that are caused by the fan-out element. Several designs for such compensating optical systems are presented, along with simulated results.
