Paper Abstract

We obtain that the irradiance impulse response along certain axes of an optical imaging system, that suffers from primary spherical aberration and longitudinal chromatic aberration, can be calculated from 1D integrations in a single 2D phase- space representation, the Wigner distribution function associated with a certain azimuthally-averaged version of the pupil of the system. This result is applied to study the response along the optical axis of unstable laser resonators and optical systems working under polychromatic illumination.
