Abstract

We propose a design for a phase mask for generating an optical vortex with suppressed sidelobes in the focal plane where the radius of the intensity ring is variable. A radial modulation added to conventional phase mask exp(ilθ) projects the light diffracted from different annular zones into a single intensity ring in the focal plane.
