Paper Abstract

A prototype programmable diffractive optics system demonstrates large aberration compensation and versatile laser wavefront control. This high-resolution phase modulator compensates large aberrations with high fidelity and high-optical efficiency via modulo-2π phase subtraction. Demonstrations include compensated imaging with monochromatic light, laser beam steering with aberration compensation, and both on-axis and off-axis aberration compensation in a telescope system. Compensated wavefront fidelities are near the diffraction limit.
