We propose and show experimentally axisymmetric spatial (angular) filtering of two-dimensional light beams by axisymmetric photonic microstructures. Such three-dimensional microstructures (similar to photonic crystals), in gapless configuration, were recorded in bulk of glass, where the refractive index has been point-by-point modulated using tightly focused femtosecond laser pulses. Axisymmetric angular filtering of approximately 25 mrad is demonstrated experimentally.
