New Approach to Developing Efficient, High-Precision 3D Light Shapers

The intensity shaper can convert an input Gaussian beam to precisely direct light, as in (a) “smiley” light distribution. Precision arrangement of voxels is achieved using ultrafast direct laser writing.

­Modern-day technologies like optical computing, integrated photonics, and digital holography require light signals to be manipulated in three dimensions. To achieve this, it is necessary to be able to shape and guide the flow of light according to its desired application. Given that light flow within a medium is
