Paper Abstract

A novel optical element, Dual-Cylindrical Prism, designed to generate and homogenize a laser beam line at an arbitrary working distance, is presented. The element with entrance surface consisting of two cylindrical shaped concave surfaces, and exit surface a single cylindrical concave, splits and overlaps the laser beam along fast axis and collimates the beam along slow axis, redistributing the diode laser output beam to a line with uniform intensity distribution and flexible working distance. The technique to design such a device is provided, and the computer-aided simulation results demonstrate the uniformity of the laser line and also the feasibility of such a device.
