A general method is presented of optimizing one-dimensional holograms to realize an arbitrary diffracted field distribution over the propagation volume. A computationally simpler approach is developed for the case in which only the transverse distribution in one plane and the longitudinal distribution on one axis are of interest. Scaling effects in the optimized beams are studied and compared with those of canonical beams.
