Paper Abstract

The use of microstructured interfaces to realize optical functions is the subject of diffractive optics. In this talk we discuss the role of diffractive optics in optical engineering. To this end optical design is based on a physical-optics model. It is established that microstructures can present alternative ways to realize optical functions and that they can be the ultimate choice to obtain a desired optical effect.
