Paper Abstract

We describe some optical combinations of refractive and diffractive lenses to compensate for the inherent wavelength dispersion shown by interference and diffraction patterns under white-light point-source illumination. In a second phase, this achromatic behavior is also applied to the case of spatially incoherent polychromatic light, i.e., to totally incoherent illumination. Finally, the above results are extended to the correction of chromatic distortion associated with diffraction of femtosecond pulse light. Several experimental results are shown.
