central irradiance on it even though a larger value occurs closer to the pupil for small values of N o Since the target distance is fixed the inversesquare law dependence is fixed Hence the irradiance

Symmetry Properties of Aberrated PSFs 1 Symmetry in the sign of the aberration coefficient 2 Symmetry in the Gaussian image plane 3 Symmetry about the Gaussian image plane 4 Symmetry of axial irradiance If the Fresnel number N is small the PSF about the Gaussian image plane will be asymmetric due to the large depth of focus and the associated inversesquare law dependence on the distance z of the observation plane from the pupil plane ie the PSFs in planes located symmetrically about the Gaussian image plane will not be the same We assume from here on that the Fresnel number is large so that the depth of focus is small and the effect of the variation of the inversesquare law dependence in the vicinity of the Gaussian image plane is negligible 636 Rotationally symmetric aberrations 2
