Analyzing of amplitude-phase characteristics of laser beam is topical in experimental physics and in a great number of laser applications, such as, for example, laser material treatment. The task of analyzing the amplitude-phase beam structure may be treated as that of analyzing the modal composition, if this is thought of as both analyzing individual modal powers and intermode phase shifts. In this paper the problem is tackled using a special diffractive optical element (DOE), called MODAN, matched to a group of laser radiation modes and their special combinations. The experimental results reported indicate that such an approach shows promise.
