Abstract

Recently, the optical design of refractive beam-shaping systems has been extensively studied, although such study remains focused on two optical surfaces. Designing a beam-shaping system with variable output beam sizes and prescribed irradiance profiles remains a challenging but rewarding task. Here, we present a design framework, including calculation of the initial system and optimization process, to achieve variable-diameter beam-shaping systems with high zoom ratios. We introduce the whole process of designing a compact $8\times $ zoom system of superior optical performance by transforming a Gaussian beam into flat-top beams with different magnifications. We also present a design of a zoom beam-shaping system transforming a Gaussian beam into variable beams with inverse Gaussian distributions to demonstrate the robustness and efficiency of the proposed method.
