Contents:
Table of Contents; Glossary of Symbols and Acronyms; Diffraction Fundamentals; Fresnel Diffraction; Fraunhofer Diffraction; Apodized Apertures; Diffraction by Multiple Apertures; Resolution Limit in Optical Instruments; Diffractive Components; Grating Properties; Blazing Condition; Scalar Diffraction Theory of a Grating; Extended Scalar Diffraction Theory; Gratings with Subwavelength Structures; Rigorous Analysis of Transmission Gratings; Polychromatic Diffraction Efficiency; Efficiency of Spaced Grating Doublets; Diffractive Components with Axial Symmetry
Diffractive Surfaces in Optical SystemsAppendix: Diffractive Raytrace; Equation Summary; Bibliography; Index
Summary: This SPIE Field Guide provides the operational principles and established terminology of diffractive optics as well as a comprehensive overview of the main types of diffractive optics components. An emphasis is placed on the qualitative explanation of the diffraction phenomenon by the use of field distributions and graphs, providing the basis for understanding the fundamental relations and important trends.
