Abstract

An improved approach called the weighted YG algorithm for the design of the diffractive phase element (DPE) that implements beam shaping in the fractional Fourier transform domain and free space is presented. Modeling designs of the DPE are carried out for several fractional orders and different param eters of the beam for optimally converting a Gaussian profile into a uniform beam. We found that our algorithm can improve the beam shaping effect, reduce the error function, and increase uniformity of light intensity.
