Abstract:
It is analytically and numerically shown that by introducing the asymmetry into the axicon design it becomes possible to generate the longitudinal electric field (E-field) component on the optical axis for linearly and circularly polarized incident beams. Binary axicons with high numerical aperture (NA) in three configurations (axis-symmetric, spiral and bi-axicon) are investigated. Experimental measurements for the near-field diffraction of linearly and circularly polarized incident beams are presented.
