Application of the two-photon polymerization (2PP) technique for the fabrication of binary radial diffractive optical elements (DOEs) to form a bottle-like intensity distribution, or “light bottle,” is studied. Computer modeling and fabrication of a binary DOE for the formation of the desired light distributions are realized. The results of scanning electron microscopy analysis of the diffractive relief produced by the 2PP technique and an investigation of the optical properties of the fabricated elements are presented.
