The concept of complex diversity is introduced that adequately accounts for special considerations in the design of the system and the reconstruction algorithm for single-shot phase retrieval techniques. Complex-number pupil filters containing both amplitude and phase values are extracted by numerical propagation from a computer-generated hologram design, which generates multiple images in a single acquisition. The reconstruction is performed by a Fourier iterative algorithm modified with an area restriction to avoid noise amplification. Numerical simulations show that the complex diversity technique estimates extrinsic Kolmogorov aberration better than conventional single-shot techniques for a distant point object. Experiments show that sensorless adaptive optics correction is achieved using the complex diversity technique.
