Paper Abstract

Polarizing computer-generated holograms (PCGH) may be useful combining different optical functions such as polarizing, imaging, beam shaping, and beamsplitting in one element. We propose the fabrication of PCGHs based on microstructuring of polarizing or birefringent materials. A simple and useful method of production of binary and grayscale-amplitude PCGHs by laser beam bleaching of polarization foil is shown. Experimental results are presented.
