Paper Abstract

Scalar and resonance domain diffractive optical elements are proposed for use within high power laser systems. Resonance domain elements are described for beam deflection and polarization selection. Scalar domain elements for harmonic separation filtering and beam shaping in the near- and far- fields are also described. Experimental results are presented for far-field beam shaping and harmonic separation filtering elements.
