Paper Abstract

We describe a simple method to impress an arbitrary amplitude and phase distribution onto an optical wave. The approach uses a ferroelectric liquid crystal spatial light modulator. Aberrations present in the optical system are measured and compensated before the system is used to tune the pupil function of a confocal microscope in a variety of ways.
