Paper Abstract

The computer model for partial coherent image based on vector theory of diffraction is presented. In this model the complex amplitude of light field is represented as superposition of basic vector plane waves. The optical system is considered as the amplitude-phase filter of a plane waves spectrum. The partial coherent illumination is described with the well-known approach--the source integration method. The presented model allows to carry out simulation of partial coherent image of amplitude-phase object with taking into account aberration and polarization effects in high NA optical systems.
