High-order Gaussian beams with multiple propagation modes have been studied for free-space optical communications. Fast classification of beams using a diffractive deep neural network, D2NN, has been proposed. D2NN optimization is important because it has numerous hyperparameters, such as interlayer distances and mode combinations. In this study, we classify Hermite-Gaussian beams, which are high-order Gaussian beams, using a D2NN, and automatically tune one of its hyperparameters known as the interlayer distance. We used the tree-structured Parzen estimator, a hyperparameter auto-tuning algorithm, to search for the best model. Results indicated that classification accuracy obtained by auto-tuning hyperparameters was higher than that obtained by manually setting interlayer distances at equal intervals. In addition, we confirmed that accuracy by auto-tuning improves as the number of classification modes increases.
