Paper Abstract

An exact raytrace (Snell''s law refraction) of the discontinuous surfaces of kinoforms (surface relief lenses) can explain their optical performance at different wavelengths without diffraction. A phase-based merit function generated by raytracing can be used to design and optimize systems containing both kinoform and conventional optical surfaces.
