Circularly symmetric phase filters for control of primary third-order aberrations: coma and astigmatism

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A quartic phase retardation function is described that reduces the variation of the intensity of the focal point of incoherent imaging systems suffering from primary third-order aberrations limited to coma and astigmatism. Corresponding modulation transfer functions are shown to remain practically invariant for moderate amounts of coma and astigmatism.
