Title: A Simple Bi-convex Laser Beam Shaper

Abstract

This paper describes a novel bi-convex single aspheric lens that converts a spatially non-uniform laser beam into one with a uniform intensity distribution. The basis for this new lens is derived theoretically and lens performance is evaluated using detailed simulation under different conditions. This new design leads to a simple single aspheric lens configuration that substantially reduces fabrication difficulty. In addition, a method to compensate profile distortion induced by non-ideal factors is presented.
