Paper Abstract

Diffractive wavefront control has been demonstrated as a viable technique for high-dynamic-range laser wavefront control. Unfortunately, most conventional programmable diffractive elements, like liquid crystals and segmented mirror arrays, damage when illuminated with high-power laser light. Continuous reflective surfaces coated with multi-layer dielectric stacks have demonstrated high damage thresholds, but are not typically thought of as good diffractive wavefront control elements because of the inability to gneerate rapid spatial phase changes. In this paper, the investigation of a continuous reflective surface as a diffractive wavefront control element is presented.
