    Abstract:
    Multiplex systems require complex field encoding but are not particularly sensitive to discontinuity or chromatic dispersion. Diffractive and micro-optics provide a complex design space but have scattering and dispersion problems. Diffractive components provide by far the greatest potential for complex coding in optical elements but they have not been popular components in imaging systems because they introduce scattering, chromatic dispersion, and other conventionally undesirable effects and, until recent years, have been difficult to fabricate with arbitrary designs. One of the keys to the emerging digital paradigm is to recognize that computational inversion is a natural component of image formation. Systems designed for inversion are termed "multiplex systems" because the measurement space is not intended to have a one-to-one correspondence with the source space
