Paper Abstract

Diffractive Optical Elements can be used to manipulate wavefronts in very complex ways. They can be used to manipulate, the amplitude, phase, and polarization of a wavefront. In this presentation we discuss optical components whose feature size is larger than one wavelength, about equal to one wavelength, and smaller than one wavelength. We outline the analytical development which describes these elements.
