Abstract
An analytical description of the scattered light from a 10 meter diameter Diffractive Optical Element lens-based telescope operating at 1 micron wavelength has been formulated. The specifics of the grating and blaze as well as physical manufacturing constraints were made a part of the problem to be solved. A major simplifying approximation made is that a 1 dimensional lens was assumed for the calculations. This simplified model still serves to illustrate the important effects and limitations of a high performance lens used as a telescope. Focal plane light scattering has been rigorously determined for simplified cases.
