Paper Abstract

High-fidelity wavefront control is demonstrated via programmable modulo-2π two-dimensional phase profiles displayed on a high-resolution computer-addressable phase modulator system. This prototype setup operates with 307,200 independently addressable elements and a fill-factor and interpixel influence function that are controlled via spatial filtering in a Fourier plane. Nonlinearities in the phase response are compensated computationally. Aberration compensation with better than 1/4-wave peak-to-peak fidelity is demonstrated.
