Abstract

To address the needs of optical systems that operate at visible wavelengths, design and fabrication techniques were developed for subwavelength diffractive optical elements in fused silica substrates. An in-house developed vector diffraction modeling code that employs a modal method to calculate the power in each diffracted order of the specified structure was used. An initial design was input and an optimization routine was employed to find the best design for a given constraint and merit function.
