Abstract

A curved hologram is introduced that allows opportunity to independently control its spatial phase function and its shape. The proper design of the hologram shape yields perfect uniform collimation and concentration of diffuse light at the thermodynamic limit of brightness conservation. The approach of curved holography can be extended to three-dimensional geometry.
