Paper Abstract

Simple apodized (soft) apertures (AA) were fabricated for use in laser physics to avoid hard-edge Fresnel diffraction in the beam spatial-intensity profile. These AA of ≈ 2-45 mm diameter have approximately Gaussian and super-Gaussian transmission function in the visible and infrared band. They have high threshold for intensity damage.
