Intuitive Diffraction Model for Multistaged Optical Systems
Eric L. Shirley
A simplified framework is motivated, in which many diffraction effects can be treated, especially in multi-staged optical systems. These include effects of limiting apertures, although this work may be especially suitable when considering diffraction errors in radiometry because of non-limiting apertures. the results should be especially helpful for short wavelengths and broadband sources, for which numerical calculations can be most difficult.
