Abstract
Elliptical outgoing beam is the main drawback of edge-emitting diode lasers, and for majority of their applications the elliptical beam needs to be transformed into another cross-sectional shape. Usually, a collimated circular beam with appropriate diameter is requested. Such a beam can be obtained in different ways, and this contribution deals with one of them - usage of off-axis holographic diffractive optics. Compensation for beam ellipticity from 1:2 for near infrared to 1:4 for visible spectra of the diode laser beam can be realized by holographic diffractive singlets recorded onto spherical substrate. Singlets employing for these ellipticities have to work in a strong off-axis mode with angles of diffraction reaching 75 deg. Theoretical analysis is presented and experimental results are given for reflection mode of operation.
