A Virtual Laboratory Designed For Teaching Di ffractive Lenses

We present a virtual laboratory generated in Matlab Gui c (Graphical User Interface) for its use in Optics courses as an informatic tool for teaching the focusing properties of a di ractive lens. This Gui allows the students to learn easily and rapidly about the in uence on the focal volume of the lens construction parameters. As an example in this work we analyze fractal di ractive lenses because we found that fractal geometry is a highly motivating topic for students since it is related to a wide range of scienti c and technological phenomena.
