Abstract

A method for determining the phase-retardation function of the uniform-intensity axilens is discussed and compared with that of an earlier publication [Opt. Lett. 16, 523 (1991)]. Within the presented formulation good agreement is achieved between the geometrical-optics prediction and the numerically evaluated diffraction integral.
