Abstract

An experimental and theoretical investigation of laser beam shaping using a simple binary diffractive optic is presented. Beam tailoring has been characterized by the experimental determination of two relevant parameters: beam propagation factor M2 and the beam-shaping longitudinal range, which represents the propagating distance for which the tailored beam remains nearly unchanged.
