Design of diffractive optical surfaces within the SMS design method
Research Areas
  • Engineering
The Simultaneous Multiple Surface (SMS) method was initially developed as a design method in Nonimaging Optics and later, the method was extended for designing Imaging Optics. We present the extension of the SMS method to design di ractive optical surfaces. This method involves the simultaneous calculation of N/2 di ractive surfaces, using the phase-shift properties of di ractive surfaces as an extra degree of freedom, such that N one-parameter wavefronts can be perfectly coupled. Moreover, the SMS method for di ractive surfaces is a direct method, i.e., it is not based in multi-parametric optimization techniques. Representative di ractive systems designed by the SMS method are presented.
