Abstract

The design of diffractive phase elements (DPE's) for generating color pseudo-nondiffracting beams (PNDB's) in a multiple-wave illuminating system by the conjugate-gradient method is described. The axial-intensity distributions for dual-color PNDB's generated by the DPE's are shown. The color PNDB's behave as segmented axial-intensity distributions; in each of segments only one color persists. The sequence of wavelength components in the color PNDB's can be arbitrarily preset. Three-dimensional plots of a dual-color PNDB indicate the characteristics of a beam with high transverse resolution.
