Paper Abstract

A new method for solving the dispersion problem of Diffractive Optical Elements (DOEs) is suggested. By aligning two DOEs made of different dispersive materials, the optical path differences as a function of the wavelength can be controlled. Applying this concept, a combined achromatic DOE can be designed for applications that require wavefront control using different wavelengths or wideband light sources. Numerical and simulation results are presented.
