Paper Abstract

Recently, since micro optics have been widely used in many optical systems, it is desired to evaluate correctly the performance of such a micro optics and design them properly. In order to estimate accurately the diffraction effect, rigorous inclination factor of diffraction should be utilized. In this paper, we derive theoretically the self-consistent inclination factor which satisfies the reciprocity theorem in scalar imaging theory. By calculating numerically the point spread function in micro optics of no aberration, we also confirm the self-consistency of this factor. That is, the point spread function calculated by the diffraction at a spherical surface on the pupil coincides with that calculated by the diffraction at a plane on the same pupil. Our result will be very useful for evaluating and designing micro optics.
