Abstract

We synthesize amplitude- and phase-type computer-generated holograms (diffractive gratings) for shaping millimeter-wave fields. We design holograms using quasi-optical back-propagation and rigorous optimization methods adopted from diffractive optics. We present experimental results from a plane-wave-generating hologram and a custom-designed field shaper at 310 GHz. Holograms can be applied, e.g., in a compact antenna test range and we propose their use for alignment purposes.
