Abstract

In this paper, the issue of misalignment in phase retrieval by means of optical linear filtering is dis cussed. The filtering setup is based on a 4f configuration with a spatial light modulator (SLM) as an active element, located in the Fourier domain. From the analysis, crucial parameters for the alignment procedure of the setup’s optical axes and the center of the SLM are identified. Furthermore, a method to automatically as well as electronically compensate such effects by modifying the phase pattern displayed on the SLM is introduced. Experimental results are presented that validate the compensation approach.
