An apparatus includes a planar waveguide, first and second gratings for coupling electromagnetic radiation into the planar waveguide, and a beam shaper for controlling the amplitude distribution of the electromagnetic radiation that impinges on the first and second gratings. A method of coupling electromagnetic radiation into a planar waveguide is also provided.
