Abstract: Sensitivity to disk vibration and large component number, which complicates assembly and optical alignment, are the drawbacks of traditional optical pickup systems. Here, a numerical method of designing a dual-wavelength diffractive objective lens with high numerical aperture for generating arbitrarily discrete, diffractionless beams with extended depth of focus is presented. Simulation and experimental results show that the optimized design provides better resolution, longer depth of focus and higher diffractive efficiency. The proposed design is promising for next-generation optical pickup systems that are more robust to disk vibration and easier to assemble. (C) 2010 Optical Society of America
