Paper Abstract

The objective of this work is the suppression of speckles in an image illuminated by a remote laser. This is accomplished by a novel method in which the illuminating laser beam propagates through a multimode fiber dithered at an arbitrary section, then passes through a microlens array prior to illuminating the image generator. Thereby the speckle contrast is reduced to its minimum value for dithering frequencies of at least 25 Hz, attaining a magnitude speckle contrast of less than 12%, and illumination homogeneity across the illumination filed of less than 20%.
