Abstract

We present a simple algorithm that makes possible the simulation of ronchigrams for any optical system in which it is possible to make an exact ray tracing. We report the simulations for the following grids: the Ronchi classical, square, circular, radial, circular-radial, biparabolic, elliptic-hyperbolic, bipolar, and bielliptic ones.
