Paper Abstract

A diffractive optical element (DOE) can correct chromatic aberration in refractive optical systems with spectral bands in the visible, mid-wavelength, and long-wavelength infrared. A DOE simplifies the optical design, improves the image quality, and lowers the cost and weight by reducing the number of lens elements and desensitizing the alignment tolerances.
