Pulse modulation of electronic time signals is a well-proven concept, particularly in the context of data communications and computers. We suggest that pulse modulation of spatial optical signals might be another fruitful concept. The optical components and optical methods for performing the necessary operations for spatial pulse modulation are available.(More)
Annularly apodized beams have been suggested for use in optical storage because of their potential to go beyond the conventional spot size and depth-of-focus limits. One concern for such applications is the effects of small aberrations on beams in which the energy is concentrated in a small annular ring. We present calculations and experimental results that(More)
