Abstract

The transformation from an annular beam intensity distribution to a cylindrical one is considered. A simple refractive optical radiation intensity redistributor was designed and fabricated, and its performance is discussed. Experimental results show that the redistributor is a useful optical element for transformations of collimated annular beam irradiance.
