Abstract
In the case of strong focusing the smallest possible focal spot can be reached, provided one uses a specially designed polarization pattern. Other optical set-ups also employing high numerical aperture imaging are likewise expected to improve performance under polarization optimization. We propose a strategy for calculating the polarization pattern required for system optimization. A single element modulating only the polarization and not amplitude and phase may lead to satisfactory performance in some cases.
