Paper Abstract

The corrective features of diffractive optics, as well as their ability to reduce costs, weight, size of conventional optical systems, show the great potentiality of these optics. In this field, the main application carried out by SFIM ODS is the chromatic aberration correction for high quality imaging systems particularly in the infrared range. In section II, Basic properties of the surface relief Diffractive Optical Element are presented. Then, section III-IV discuss about hybrid optics, optical design and complementary analysis. Finally we present design and experimental results in sections V-VI.
