In contrast to numerical methods for beam shaping, analytical beam shaping consists of two steps: first, finding a purely geometrical distortion between the input plane and the output plane redistributing the intensity of the incoming wave front; and, second, computing a phase-only element realizing this coordinate transform.

For the latter the method of stationary phase may. Figure 1: Schematic view of the semiconductor chip of a diode laser bar with a fill factor of 50%.
