Abstract

In this study, we focus on how to reshape the field intensity distribution on the wavefront of an incident beam and produce special optical beams (e.g., asymmetric Gaussian beams, hollow beams, and zeroth-order Bessel beams) using optical surface transformation (OST). The key design method of this paper is based on OST, which is the extension of transformation optics. Numerical simulations are given to verify the performance of the proposed devices.
