Abstract

We discuss the accurate generation of complex optical fields using phase holograms that provide the optimum diffraction efficiency. In each considered case, the phase modulation of the employed hologram is identical to the phase of the desired optical field. We show that periodic and quasiperiodic nondiffracting optical fields, mathematically obtained through the superposition of multiple plane waves, can be generated with high fidelity using this approach.
