Optical System Design of Telescope Based on Mixed Modulation Diffractive Lens
Using of diffractive optical elements (DOE) in the Schupmann system offer a new way for the construction of ultra-large aperture telescope. The Fresnel Corrector, one of the DOEs, is the key device in the Schupmann system, which is used to correct the chromatic aberration introduced by the diffractive primary lens called Magnifying Glass. Generally, in a large aperture telescope (>20 m), the Fresnel Corrector is a diffractive lens with a large aperture and a small f-number, which is difficult to process. In this article, an improved device with a small F number but a large rim feature size, called amplitude and phase hybrid modulation Fresnel diffractive optical element (APHMFDOE), is used here as the Fresnel corrector. First, APHMFDOE with appropriate parameters is designed to match the dispersion of the Magnifying Glass so that the system meets the achromatic condition. Second, the optical characteristics of this improved system are simulated and compared with those of the general system based on the conventional Fresnel corrector. Our approach introduces a new dispersion correction device, which not only can eliminate the chromatic aberration caused by Magnifying Glass, but also can reduce the processing difficulty of Fresnel Corrector.
