Abstract

A more computationally tractable model of the kinoform lenses in hybrid refractive-diffractive systems is proposed by taking into consideration the actual phase function of the kinoform lenses for every wavelength. The principle and outline of this modified model are explained. We compare the results of this approach with the more conventional single order calculation and with the standard diffraction-order expansion by using a practical hybrid optical system example.
