A fast and accurate method is developed for the computation of two-dimensional point-spread functions of photon sieves (modified Fresnel zone plates). Using this computational method, we analyze the imaging properties of photon sieves under different design scenarios. The method can also effectively be used for any other diffractive imaging element.
