Abstract

A new method for performing optical coordinate transformation is presented. It is based on a curved holographic element on which the interference pattern of two perpendicular plane waves is recorded. The design procedures and results for two curved elements that perform a one-dimensional logarithmic coordinate transformation and a Gaussian-to-uniform-beam conversion are given.
