Abstract

We introduce an approach to generate holographic data for diffractive optical elements fabricated by means of a diamond-turning process. The aim is to project a predefined intensity distribution in the far-field domain of the corresponding diffractive surface. The method takes into consideration typical constraints that result from the fabrication process, such as the spiral path of the turning tool and the fact that only the phase distribution of the incident light can be manipulated.
