Abstract

We present a design of the diffractive phase elements (DPE’s) that produce nondiffracting beams according to the beam-shaping scheme, in which the incident Gaussian-profile beam is converted into a Bessel-function J0 beam. An optimization method is applied to solving this special beam-shaping problem. Numerical investigation of the generating J0 Bessel beam shows that the designed DPE can satisfactorily produce the J0 Bessel beam.
