Paper Abstract

Within the paraxial framework, use of spiral phase elements is proposed for the shaping of light beams. More specifically, we analytically investigate some anisotropic optical devices for inducing controlled changes in several spatial and vectorial characteristics of light. As an illustrative example, depleted-center beams are considered.
