Abstract

We compare two phase optical elements that are employed to generate approximate Bessel–Gauss beams of arbitrary order. These elements are the helical axicon (HA) and the kinoform of the desired Bessel–Gauss beam. The HA generates a Bessel beam (BB) by free propagation, and the kinoform is employed in a Fourier spatial filtering optical setup. As the main result, it is obtained that the error in the BBs generated with the kinoform is smaller than the error in the beams obtained with the HA. On the other hand, it is obtained that the efficiencies of the methods are approximately 1.0 (HA) and 0.7 (kinoform).
