Paper Abstract

Compound telescope is a new type of space optical system. It uses the concept of compound eyes and the property of diffractive lens. With the help of diffractive lens, the diffractive optical system could become lighter weight, lower cost, and looser tolerance. And with the help of compound-eye configuration, the field of view is expanded. A design example of compound diffractive optical system is given. It is composed of many diffractive telescope of F/4, 200mm aperture, 0.1 degrees field of view. It is shown that the whole system can approximately attain the diffraction limit over wide field of view.
