Abstract

We describe what we believe is a novel speckle-pattern interferometry method of applying a spatial light modulator (SLM) as an adaptive phase mask to obtain real-time fringes of a deformed object without using conventional correlation methods of electronic subtraction or addition. The method is to use a SLM to cancel initial phase in the speckled image before the object is deformed. The fringes from the deformed object can be visualized directly after the initial phase has been canceled. A commercial liquid-crystal television is used as a SLM. The performance of using this SLM in an out-of-plane speckle interferometer is demonstrated.
