Paper Abstract

The simplest achromatic hybrid lens consists of a refractive (glass) lens with a diffractive microstructure deposited on one of its surfaces. In such lens the reasonable aberration correction is possible only for very limited aperture and field angles. Better possibilities of aberration correction appear if we split the refractive lens onto two identical parts separated by certain distance and locate the diffractive element between the glass lenses. We show that in such way it is possible to obtain hybrid lens of the same or even smaller aberrations for substantially greater aperture and field angles.
