Abstract
A two-element holographic optical system is described for converting an elliptically shaped Gaussian-profile laser beam into a rectangularly shaped beam that is uniform in amplitude and phase in the nearfield. Theoretical analysis, design considerations, and experimental results are presented for a compact converter system of less than 6 cm in length.
