Paper Abstract

The performance of optical systems is typically improved by adding conventional optical components which is automatically connected to an increasing system size and weight. Hybrid optical freeform components can help to overcome this traditional tradeoff by designing a single complex optical surface that performs several optical functions at once. In this article we present the synthetic design and integrated fabrication of a reflective hybrid beam shaper offering beam deflection, transformation and splitting capabilities. The shape accuracy and surface quality of the component are demonstrated with profilometric measurements. Experimental investigations of the optical performance verify the suitability of the applied fabrication methods and design approach.
