Paper Abstract

Liquid crystal televisions (LCTVs) have become very popular spatial light modulators. Their polarization and phase modulation capabilities allow them to be used as inexpensive spatial light modulators in a wide variety of applications. The design of a dynamic Hermann wavefront sensor system is described. A LCTV is used as an aberration generator in an optical system. A LCTV is also used as a Harmann wavefront sensor to measure the aberrations. Experimental results characterizing the LCTVs performance as an aberration generator and Harmann wavefront sensor are presented.
