Abstract
A new type of optical instrument, the curved hologram, is introduced that allows us the unique opportunity to independently control its spatial phase function and its shape. We show how proper design of the hologram shape (using a simple analytic procedure) yields perfect uniform collimation, and also collimation and concentration of diffuse (monochromatic) light at the thermodynamic limit of brightness conservation.
