Abstract

A technique for diffuse beam shaping is presented. The beam shaping is achieved by a single reflection on an element, which consists of many displaced parallel planar reflecting facets. The reflecting facets approximate a designed curved surface. We demonstrate the validity of the method for the conversion of a diffuse Gaussian beam into a uniform one in one of the spatial dimensions.
