Abstract

Binary phase elements in photoresist have been implemented which transform a uniform beam of light into an array of output light spots by means of the fractional Talbot effect. Arrays of more than 30 × 30 light spots with varying spot shapes have been achieved with compression ratios of up to 1:9.
