At present, the progress in optics is associated with wide use of diffractive optical elements (DOEs). In this paper we present a DOE design method, which not use computer iterative methods. Starting from the knowledge of the expression of the propagated field on image plane, we use simple formulas to obtain the entire information necessary to characterize the desired DOE. The DOE designed with the proposed method can equate an arbitrary complex amplitude transmission T(r) and has higher imaging accuracy than other DOEs. Even if it is possible studying any level combination, the aim of this paper is to summarize the results of simulation experiments which were carried out only to test the binary level diffractive optical elements (DOEs).
