Abstract

We present a method that combines an asymmetrical phase mask (PM) and its rotated PM to potentially improve the signal-to-noise ratio in wavefront coding systems. The property of the rotated PM is analyzed. A complementary promotional synthetic optical transfer function is generated as the deconvolution filter for image recovery. The image artifacts are suppressed through processing in the frequency domain. Simulation results provide a quantitative analysis that is based on a cubic PM. Experimental results show that our method can improve image quality over a wide range of defocus.
