|20080240347||METHOD, APPARATUS, AND SYSTEM FOR EXTENDING DEPTH OF FIELD (DOF) IN A SHORT-WAVELENGTH MICROSCOPE USING WAVEFRONT ENCODING - A lens assembly for enhancing the depth of field of a short-wavelength microscopic system is disclosed. The lens assembly includes an objective zone plate lens, an encoding lens, an imaging detector and a decoding component connected to the imaging detector. The objective zone plate lens is oriented to receive short-wavelength radiation that has passed through a sample in a microscopic system. The encoding lens is oriented to receive the short-wavelength radiation that has passed through the objective zone plate lens and encode the radiation to output an encoded short-wavelength radiation. The imaging detector is oriented to receive the encoded short-wavelength radiation and convert it to a digital signal which is subsequently decoded by the decoding component to decode the encoding applied to the short-wavelength radiation.||10-02-2008|
