Abstract
A novel compact planar configuration for correcting the asymmetric divergence of light emanating from diode lasers is presented. It is comprised of two holographic lenses that are recorded on one transparent substrate, where the light propagates form one lens to the other by means of total internal reflections. The design of the overall planar configuration is presented along with experimental result. The results reveal that it is possible to focus a collimated asymmetric beam to a circular spot.
