We experimentally demonstrate a miniaturized zoom lens with a single moving element based on the concepts and analysis described in Opt. Express 17, 6118 (2009). We show that the implementation of either a cubic or a generalized cubic phase-modulation function makes miniaturization possible in addition to providing extended-depth- of-field imaging. We present recovered images for zoom lenses employing both phase-modulation functions and conclude that the generalized-cubic-phase function yields higher image quality without the artifacts present for the pure-cubic-phase function.
