Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new kind of long distance detection source-- hollow double-half Gaussian laser beams is put forward. By use of modified Cassegrain optics system, we obtained hollow beams with special light distribution-parallel hollow double-half Gaussian laser beams, the intensity distribution of this kind of hollow beams is zero at all the hollow area and is maximum at inner margin, so forms double half-Gaussian beams, and the inner and the outer diameters of the hollow beams are controllable. The analytical equation of propagation and transformation of the hollow laser beams in free space was deduced. The simulation shows that the intensity exhibits three-dimensional trap distribution in the near-field, while the double half-Gaussian hollow beams turns into solid laser beams when propagating a certain distance, which shows the characteristic of self-focus. By use of the characteristic of self-focus of the double half-Gaussian hollow beams, we can realized the self-gating long distance detection to the small object even if in the condition of lower laser power. The technology will be applied broadly in the near years.
