Abstract
Intensity transformation by using paraxial-domain polarization-modulating diffractive elements is discussed. It is shown that taking the electromagnetic nature of light into account may lead to a dramatic increase in the diffraction efficiency also in the paraxial domain, in which the vectorial nature of light is usually ignored. Examples are given for signals for which the full 100% conversion efficiency is possible.
