Annual apodizers for low sensitivity to defocus and to spherical aberration

Optics Letters (Impact Factor: 3.29). 08/1986; 11(8):487-489. DOI: 10.1364/OL.11.000487


We propose a method for designing apodizers that increase the depth of focus and reduce the influence of spherical aberration. These two properties are explicitly manifested in computer-generated pictures and values of the Strehl ratio for variable spherical aberration.
