Help Sought with Diffractive Optical Elements and Ray Tracing (Hail Mary / Wild Goose Chase)
3

I have always wanted to support optical prescriptions with Diffractive Optical Elements (DOEs) in the PhotonsToPhotos Optical Bench.
(The Optical Bench is a 2D geometric ray tracer.)
In the past 18 months I've made several attempts but am not completely satisfied with the results.
I might release what I have at this point with some sort of warning to the users.

Recently I have been collaborating with Michael Hayford (ray-optics ).
Daniel Reilly (lens-designs.com) has also help out with some testing.

It's a long shot but if anyone has any other resources I would like to hear from you.
