Abstract

The impact of the precision and direction of motion of a diffractive optical element (DOE) placed inside an optical system on the efficiency of speckle suppression is analyzed. A simple model for calculating the speckle suppression efficiency in systems having a moving DOE and a random diffuser is developed. Simulation results show that at the optimal inclination angles of a regular 2D DOE and at sufficiently rapid displacement (at least N DOE periods), the speckle contrast exhibits a broad minimum. At angles that differ significantly from the optimal values, the speckle contrast varies rapidly and has peaks that exceed the minimum value by several tens of percent. For certain DOE inclination angles, the speckle contrast is several times higher than the minimum value.
