This work presents the design and fabrication of polymeric, structural optical filters that simultaneously focus light. These filters represent a novel, to the best of our knowledge, design at the boundary between diffractive optics and metasurfaces that may provide significant advantages for both digital and hyperspectral imaging. Filters for visible and near-infrared wavelengths were designed using finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulations. Prototype filters were fabricated using two-photon lithography, a form of nanoscale 3D printing, and have geometries suitable to replication by molding. The experimentally measured spectral transmission and focused spot size of each filter show excellent agreement with simulation.
