Abstract

We calculate a refractive surface to generate a one-parameter intensity distribution described by a vector function of one argument from an incident beam with a plane wavefront. The calculation of the refractive surface is reduced to the solution of two explicit ordinary differential equations of the first order. An approach to solving the problem of the existence of solutions for various one-parameter intensity distributions is proposed. Optical elements that form a variety of intensity distributions (a line, a circular arc, and a double-arc) are designed. The results of numerical simulations of the designed optical elements demonstrate the high quality of the generated line-shaped patterns.
