Paper Abstract

Wavefront coding enables conventional optical imaging systems to operate over an extended depth of field/focus by modifying the light field using a specially designed phase mask. Different phase masks can be used to alter the transmitted wavefront of the optical system which may result in different performances in terms of the capability of the depth-of-focus extension, aberration suppression and the process of imaging acquirement. In this paper, we present a comparative study on the performances of two major different categories of the phase mask, i.e., rotational symmetric and asymmetric type phase masks. Three different types of phase masks that are of cubic, quartic, and logarithmic phase profile are investigated. Fabrication and metrology of a cubic mask is conducted and a full cycle of imaging process including the image coding and decoding is performed.
