Abstract

The calibration and correction of backplane aberration of a liquid-crystal spatial light modulator (LCSLM) are important for its proper functioning. To simplify the calibration procedurally, we study a random-illumination-phase-retrieval-based method. Our method improves the convergence of the phase-retrieval-based calibration and reduces the calibration complexity. However, the cross talk of the LCSLM deteriorates the calibration performance. We determined the relationship between the probability density function of the random phases and the light-intensity pattern and proposed an algorithm to compensate for the cross talk. We conducted a series of simulations to test the performance of the above-mentioned algorithms. The results show that our algorithms are effective and outperform other methods.
