Low cost adjustable axicon

Abstract : In this paper we propose a very simple device that acts as an adjustable axicon: it simply consists in a 0.25mm thick silicon wafer deformed in its centre by a small ball. Beam shapings comparable to those usually generated by axicon are observed: Bessel beams and dark hollow beams, both very useful in cold atoms manipulation.
