Abstract

Diffractive optical elements (DOEs) for beam shaping of spatially incoherent light into an output spot with arbitrary intensity profile, particularly into a tightly focused output spot are demonstrated. Several different design examples are shown. The ratio of the maximum sidelobe intensity to the maximum intensity in the signal window ranges from 5.0% to ~50%. Experimental results are in close agreement with numerical predictions.
