Abstract

A simple, single-element, afocal, refractive optical device with two aspheric surfaces has been designed and fabricated for transformation the Gaussian intensity profile of a He-Ne laser into a collimated beam of uniform profile. The working principle, the method of design, the method of fabrication are presented. Optical and geometrical properties of the fabricated sample have been tested. Device parameters and simulated behavior are compared with test results in detail.
