Paper Abstract

We describe a simple method to obtain an arbitrary complex optical field. The system employs a ferroelectric liquid crystal spatial light modulator acting as a binary optical element in a 4-f optical system. The ability to produce an arbitrary wavefront permits us to modify the pupil function of an objective lens in any desired manner. Examples of pupil plane filters which enhance certain aspects of the point spread function are described.
