Abstract

The properties of kinoforms being fully and partially illuminated during synthesis are compared by computer simulation. Partial illumination during synthesis results in smoother intensity patterns produced by the kinoforms. A new iteration technique which uses a Gaussian beam that moves during kinoform synthesis is proposed.
