Abstract

Several options for beam-shaping optics are presented, among them a novel single-element solution with toroidal surfaces in which the far-field angular spread of the outgoing beam is the average of the incoming divergences. The beam-shaping elements are judged with respect to their positioning and fabrication tolerances.
