We propose designs of pupil-domain optical diffusers for a snapshot spectral imaging system using binary-phase encoding. The suggested designs enable the creation of point-spread functions with defined optical response, having profiles that are dependent on incident wavefront wavelength. This efficient combination of dispersive and diffusive optical responses enables us to perform snapshot spectral imaging using compressed sensing algorithms while keeping a high optical throughput alongside a simple fabrication process. Experimental results are reported.
