By using previously established methods based on linear programming (MLP), we design and fabricate two types of diffractive superresolution element (DSE). The structure parameters and superresolution performances of the fabricated DSEs are tested. The test results agree well with the design results and are applicable to a writable or a read-only optical disk. Thus the application validity of the MLP is experimentally verified.
