Abstract

We discuss the beam smoothing principle of a continuous phase plate (CPP) while the input light is varying. The analysis model of the process in which the laser beam with random phase noise propagates through a CPP has been established. With this model the beam smoothing mechanism of the CPP for the laser beam with a different phase aberrations can be described. A method to optimize the smoothing result is introduced.
