Quasi-achromatic Fresnel zone lens with ring focus

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The phase of a standard Fresnel zone lens (FZL) is periodically modulated in the radial direction using the phase of a binary fraxicon. The resulting element (rf-FZL) focuses light into a ring. The ring is found to be quasi-achromatic, in that the diameter is wavelength independent but its location is not. The binary rf-FZL is fabricated using electron beam direct writing. Experimental results confirm the generation of a wavelength-independent ring pattern at the focus of the rf-FZL. An efficiency of 24% was obtained. The variation in radius of ring pattern was reduced from 61 μm to less than 10 nm for a corresponding wavelength variation from 532 to 633 nm.
