Paper Abstract

Based on the theoretical framework of the Generalized Phase Contrast (GPC) method we can design systems for a range of phase image processing applications and achieve optimal performance in terms of energy efficiency, visibility and peak irradiance. In this presentation, we give an overview of some potential applications that exploit the GPC method. These include phase-visualization and wavefront sensing, programmable optical tweezers, optical encryption systems and amplitude encoding of spatial phase patterns.
