Abstract

We consider a computer-generated hologram for the one-dimensional collimation in x of the output from a linear laser-diode array in y. Our concern is to produce one-dimensional pencil beams from each laser diode with small cross talk between the output from the separate laser diodes. Such outputs can be used in matrix–vector, neural net, and interconnection applications. The efficiency and the design of the computer-generated hologram are detailed, and initial optical laboratory results with an electron-beam recorded computer-generated hologram are presented.
