Paper Abstract

Binary optics is an emerging technology whereby light is directed, combined or distributed by an optical material having a binary or "stepped" phase structure. By employing multiple mask lithography in the fabrication process, we produce computer-generated diffractive elements having optical efficiencies that were previously beyond reach. In this paper we use binary optics technology to generate a high quality aspheric corrector plate which we employ in a Schmidt telescope.
