The performance of the extended depth of field (EDOF) flat lens is shown below. The calculated Point-Spread Function (PSF) shows good focusing for the extended depth of focus range in Fig. (a). The calculated PSF as a function of distance from the lens is also shown in Fig. (b). To the right Fig. (c), standard black-card mark tests are shown from 195 - 270 mm from the lens as well as microscope scans of the marks (50x magnification). No refocusing was performed as the target distance was changed. While the size of the mark varies due to galvo drawing, the spot size remains uniform. In the lowermost photographs Fig. (d), a standard black-card mark test was made on a folded card where the two surfaces of the card were spaced 30 mm apart. The markings are clear and distinct on both surfaces.  Besides, the flat lens can replace the f-theta lens which is more space-saving and cost-effective, as shown in Fig. (e).
