Abstract

Introduction of an annular aperture into an axicon characterized by the logarithmic phase-retardation function, resulted in significant improvement in the uniformity of both lateral resolution and energy flow in comparison with the effect of a full-aperture element. The improved uniformity of the new element was gained at the expense of some efficiency.
