23 August 1996 Diffractive lenses for dual-waveband IR
Author Affiliations +
Plots of the spectral shift of focus over the middle, 3 - 5 micrometers (MWIR), and far, 8 - 12 micrometers (LWIR), infrared wavelengths are presented for thin lenses using various combinations of optical material and employing a diffractive surface cut as a kinoform. Lens examples are given for small field of view aplanats, resolving a tenth of a milliradian and employing a minimal number of lens elements. Particular advantages of the use of the hologram are considered together with some potential problems.
