Abstract

We propose a new (to our knowledge) method for performing beam shaping. Calculations show that beam patterns including diamond, rhombus, and hollow beam with diamond-shaped dark core can be generated in the focal plane of a square Fresnel zone plate by choosing appropriate parameters of an incident elliptic vortex beam. Numerical simulations have demonstrated the validity and effectiveness of this method.
