Abstract

Within the framework of inverse diffractive optics, we present a design for diffractive axicons in twisted, spatially partially coherent fields, in particular twisted Gaussian Schell-model (TGSM) fields. The design is based on the method of stationary phase. A general modification is introduced to the inverse diffractive optics approach for improving the synthesized optical element to produce the desired intensity distribution. Both the design and modification are demonstrated with annular-aperture axicons generating uniform-intensity axial line segments in partially coherent TGSM illumination.
