Abstract

A new scheme for converting a Gaussian irradiance profile beam on the input plane into a uniform irradiance profile beam on the output plane is presented based on polarization-selective diffractive phase elements. The relevant elements were designed by use of the simulated annealing method. The simulation design shows that the shaping quality is substantially improved and is much better than that obtained with traditional diffractive phase elements.
