Paper Abstract

In this work, we propose an alternative method for design diffractive lenses controlling the spherical aberration for monochromatic imaging. These diffractive lenses are designed on a rotationally symmetrical surface. Our method calculates the surface profiles for any substrate, for any f-number and any object position. The calculations are exact and an optimization process is not required.
