Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Theoretical description of phase discretization and quantization is provided for computer generated optical elements (CGOE). Suitable estimations of meansquared and maximum aberrations, Strehl number and mean wavefront deviation are derived in dependence of discretization and quantization parameters. A diffractive aberration corrector for thin lens and also phase diffractive compensator for aspheric wavefront formation are investigated as examples.
