Paper Abstract

In this work, we present numerical and experimental generation of reconfigurable vector beams employing synthetic phase holograms (SPH) that provide the optimum diffraction efficiency and high quality of reconstruction. The vector beams with spatially variable polarization are generated by the linear recombination of two orthogonally homogeneous polarized scalar modes. The scalar modes are generated with a SPH displayed in a phase-only Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) and superimposed using a common-path interferometer which consists of a 4-f system. We demonstrate the generation of high order TE and TM vector Bessel, Mathieu and Weber beams which could be used for optical trapping applications.
