Paper Abstract

In this paper, we compare and summarize the features of two types of 2D array illuminators--the binary zone plate array and the Talbot array illuminator--both producing a spot array in the near field without the addition of any optical component. Numerical evaluations of the illumination efficiency are based on the scalar theory. We present and discuss furthermore the experimental results obtained by such array illuminators when fabricated under the same conditions, i.e., by optical lithography and two masks (four-level binary optics).
