Abstract

A design method based on the Yang–Gu algorithm [Appl. Opt. 33, 209 (1994)] is proposed for computing the phase distributions of an optical system composed of diffractive phase elements that achieve beam shaping with a high transfer efficiency in energy. Simulation computations are detailed for rotationally symmetric beam shaping in which a laser beam with a radially symmetric Gaussian intensity distribution is converted into a uniform beam with a circular region of support. To present a comparison of the efficiency and the performance of the designed diffractive phase elements by use of the geometrical transformation technique, the Gerchberg–Saxton algorithm and the Yang–Gu algorithm for beam shaping, we carry out in detail simulation calculations for a specific one-dimensional beam-shaping example.
