Diffraction image technology is an updated technology. It has more potential for developing the larger aperture and lightweight telescope than the conventional refractive and reflective optics. In order to develop a large aperture diffractive telescope, the key is to solve the problem of large aperture lens stitching. Different stitching patterns have different effects on the image quality. However, the stitching pattern for diffractive telescope is different from the conventional refractive and reflective telescope. This paper, for the first time, studies the theory of stitching pattern for diffractive telescope. On the basis of theoretical analysis, a long-wavelength infrared diffractive telescope of segmented-lens is designed and for the first time, good results through stitching experiments have been achieved. According to theoretical analysis and experiment verification, the paper gives the best stitching pattern on diffractive telescope.
