Abstract

Implementation of a beam-shaping system, whereby an arbitrary array of spots is generated, is proposed. The suggested beam-shaping generator, which is based on the Gerchberg–Saxton algorithm, contains two phase-only filters and thus yields a very-high-power throughput. The flexibility of the suggested approach is demonstrated with some computer simulations.
