Paper Abstract

Three different approaches to calculation of internal structure of bokeh image in camera lenses with two aspheric surfaces are analyzed and compared – the transfer function approach, the beam propagation approach and direct raytracing in an optical design software. The transfer function approach is the fastest and provides accurate results when peak-to-valley of mid-spatial frequency phase modulation induced at the lens exit pupil is below λ/10. Aspheric surfaces are shown to contribute to the bokeh structure differently increasing the complexity of bokeh image especially for offaxis bokeh.
