20 April 1995 Cancellation of material dispersion in harmonic diffractive lenses
Author Affiliations +
A radial, modulo-m2(pi) diffractive lens and a modulo-2(pi) diffractive lens are superposed in a single integrated optical element. The resulting compound lens both introduces optical power and cancels material dispersion. The lens is a microthin, planar achromat suitable for broadband imaging applications. An f/5, 100 mm focal length lens is fabricated by precision diamond-turning. A master mold is generated from the diamond turned copper; the master is then used to form a second-generation replica in an optical quality, uv-cured photopolymer. The measured effective V-number of the replicated lens is 213. Measured narrowband (2 nm) resolution is 120 lp/mm with a contrast of 10%.
