Measurement and compensation of optical aberrations using a single spatial light modulator.

Abstract

We describe a compact adaptive optical system using a spatial light modulator (SLM) as a single element to both measure and compensate optical aberrations. We used a low-cost, off-the-shelf twisted nematic liquid-crystal display (TNLCD) optimally configured to achieve maximum phase modulation with near constant transmittance. The TNLCD acts both as the microlens array of a Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensor and as the aberration compensation element. This adaptive setup is easy to implement and offers great versatility.
