Abstract

A new concept based on the theory of Dammann gratings is proposed for the generation of circular optical beams. This grating shows that it can achieve equal intensity and equal spacing with acceptable efficiency that is controlled by set of transition points. A numerical solution is also presented together with the fabrication of 4-order circular Dammann grating by e-beam lithography. Experimental results agree well with the scalar diffraction theory. This grating has the potential to be further developed into practical applications.
