Title: Comment on 'Tunable three-dimensional intensity distribution by a pure phase-shifting apodizer'

Abstract

In the past few years, many radially symmetric pupil masks have been designed for the control of the light intensity distribution near the geometrical focus of optical systems. A recent paper by Gao et al. [Appl. Opt. 44, 4870 (2005)] analyzed the performance of binary 0-{pi}phase-only masks for an incident beam with Gaussian amplitude. Some inaccuracies of the analysis concerning the evolution of the Strehl ratio with the mask parameters are corrected.
