Abstract

The article concerns an investigation of the Fresnel diffraction characteristics of two types of phase optical elements under Gaussian laser beam illumination. Both elements provide an azimuthal periodicity of the phase retardation. The first element possesses azimuthal cosine-profiled phase changes deposited on a plane base. The second element is a combination of the first element and a thin phase axicon. The cosine profile of the phase retardation of both diffractive elements produces an azimuthal cosine-profiled modulation on their diffractograms. It destroys the vortex characteristics of their diffraction fields.
