Abstract

A refracting system consisting of two lenses is designed to transform an annular Gaussian laser beam into a circular Bessel beam. The slopes of the input and output surfaces fit well with a sixth-order polynomial. A smooth variation of the radii of curvature of the resulting aspheric surfaces is very attractive for easy machining of the surfaces. The diffraction-free length for the designed system is 59.4735 m at 633 nm.
