Paper Abstract

A novel method to control LC phase modulators is presented. Various modifications of modal LC correctors are described in detail, including adaptive spherical and cylindrical lenses and a 37-element wavefront corrector. Physical mechanisms are explained with the emphasis on their practical implications.
