The paper presents a proposal of multiorder varifocal moiré zone plates, which change their focal length because of the lateral displacement of their two components with transmittances described by a cubic profile. The newly introduced element turns out to be an intermediate solution of the hitherto existing elements, which are the refractive Alvarez lens and its diffractive counterpart. Some of the expected properties of multiorder varifocal moiré zone plates are discussed, as well as reasons, because of which this newly introduced set of elements can be of interest in practical applications.
