Paper Abstract

This paper presents a general formulation of multifaceted mirror configurations for transforming an arbitrary laser beam irradiance pattern into a uniform irradiance pattern. Three configurations are presented and compared. Two of these configurations are new: a strip integrator that reduces manufacturing complexity and an imaging integrator that minimizes deleterious diffraction effects. Aberration effects associated with the relaying or imaging of the irradiance pattern and a novel technique for correction are also discussed.
