Paper Abstract

The problem of design of a two-mirror optical systems for reshaping the irradiance distribution of a laser beam in a prescribed manner is considered. These designs are developed under the geometrical optics approximation. The novelty is that our method is not limited to input and/or output radiance profiles which are rotational or rectangular symmetric. Moreover, the method leads to two beam-shaping systems for one of which the first mirror is concave and the second is convex.
