Kinoform phase plates for focal plane irradiance profile control.
A versatile, rapidly convergent, iterative algorithm is presented for the construction of kinoform phase plates for tailoring the far-field intensity distribution of laser beams. The method consistsExpand

Designing fully continuous phase screens for tailoring focal-plane irradiance profiles.
An iterative algorithm for constructing fully continuous phase screens for tailoring far-field intensity profiles is presented. The algorithm is robust, stable, and, if run properly, maintains theExpand

Random phase plates for beam smoothing on the Nova laser.
We discuss the design and fabrication of 80-cm-diameter random phase plates for target-plane beam smoothing on the Nova laser. Random phase plates have been used in a variety of inertial confinementExpand

Diffractive Alvarez lens.
A diffractive Alvarez lens is demonstrated that consists of two separate phase plates, each having complementary 16-level surface-relief profiles that contain cubic phase delays. Translation of theseExpand

Fabrication of large-aperture lightweight diffractive lenses for use in space.
We describe the advantages of using diffractive (Fresnel) lenses on thin membranes over conventional optics for, among others, future space telescope projects. Fabrication methods are presented forExpand
