Paper Abstract

Several methods are available for collimating and circularizing beams for laser diodes. However, most of them make use of expensive equipment. In the present paper, a method involving a holographic polymer-dispersed liquid crystal DOE is used to circularize and collimate a beam emerging from a low cost infrared (850 nm) laser diode. Different characteristics of the recorded hologram are presented, such as angular and position tolerance. The material's shrinkage is also investigated in the present work.
