Paper Abstract

An array illuminator provides the holding beam for an array of optical switches. The transformation of an incoming light beam can be brought about by several optical arrangements as are: telescopic arrays of lenses or holograms, phase contrast, Fraunhofer or Fresnel diffraction at periodic phase masks. The phase contrast illuminator will be discussed in more detail.
