Abstract

A holographic zone plate generated by subtracting the spherical wave phase is proposed, that is, a hologram generated by using two divergent or convergent spherical waves. This holographic zone plate can correct the increase in focal power in a radial direction in contrast with the interferometric zone plate. Use of this holographic zone plate for f · θ and collimating lenses is analyzed. For an f · θ lens, it is shown that an optimum combination of recording spherical waves exists that satisfies both scan linearity and image field flatness. For a collimating lens for a laser diode, it is shown that aberration can be corrected for different playback wavelengths from that used during recording.
