Chromatic Aberration Correction by an Idealized Diffractive Lens in a Hybrid Eyepiece Model

Hybrid lenses with both refractive and diffractive surfaces become a promising solution in different applications. Here we will demonstrate an example on a hybrid eyepiece, in which a diffractive lens surface is used to correct chromatic aberration. The initial design is taken from Zemax OpticStudio® and imported into VirtualLab Fusion for further investigation. In this Use Case the diffractive lens surface is modeled with an ideal surface defined by the diffraction orders, the diffraction efficiency of each order and the wavefront phase response.
