Abstract
Experimental and theoretical diffraction intensities are studied for large spherical aberrations ranging from 5X to 50X. In addition, diffractive and geometric rms spot sizes are compared. The experiments and analysis show that for large spherical aberrations there is a core near-axis intensity region that is independent of the aperture radius. This is verified by a stationary phase expansion of the diffraction intearals.
