Paper Abstract

Focal shift of the zone plate is completely different from the corresponding circular and annular apertures. Focal powers of the zone plate are constant under some conditions but for the latter they are always variables. Astigmatism for a zone plate is also investigated. The sagittal focal surfaces are unchanged but the tangential focal surfaces are changed as a function: cos2(Theta) , besides, it has neither spherical aberration nor coma. They are also completely different from conventional imaging devices.
