Multiwavelength operation with thin diffractive elements

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

It is generally accepted that diffractive elements designed for multiwavelength operation require deep surface-relief profiles. We show, however, that thin diffractive elements can be designed to operate with more than one wavelength. A novel, to our knowledge, optimization technique is introduced for this purpose. The maximum phase delay is limited to only a few multiples of 2π, and the element can implement different functions for different wavelengths. Examples with fan-out gratings are discussed.
