For some applications it is necessary to transform an intensity distribution from Gaussian to a flattop, doughnut, etc. It could be performed with the use of adaptive optics that distorts the phase of the beam and changes the shape of the focal spot in the far-field. In this paper, we present the flattop and doughnut beam formation result with the use of a bimorph and stacked-actuator deformable mirrors. The experimental results are also given.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
