Sub-wavelength grating induced wavefront aberrations: A case study

Karlton Crabtree, Russell A. Chipman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The on-axis polarization aberration function of a onedimensional subwavelength grating antireflection coating on a f/1.7 lens surface is analyzed. 0.02 waves of astigmatism are induced and the retardance aberration (astigmatism+defocus) is less than 0.02 waves.
