Abstract

We have experimentally reproduced ring-shaped beams from the scattered Laguerre–Gaussian and Bessel–Gaussian beams. A rotating ground glass plate is used as a scattering medium, and a plano–convex lens collects the scattered light to generate ring-shaped beams at the Fourier plane. The obtained experimental results are supported with the numerical results and are in good agreement with the theoretical results proposed by Wang et al. [Opt. Express 17, 22366 (2009)].
