Abstract

Typically, spatial light modulator (SLM)-based microscopy is implemented using a carrier frequency in order to avoid disturbances due to the non-ideal modulation behavior of most SLMs. However, in combination with polychromatic light, this leads to strong chromatic aberrations due to the dispersion at the grating formed by the carrier frequency. In this contribution, we introduce a method based on the evaluation of multiple images obtained with different carrier frequency orientations. This way, chromatic aberrations and the limitation concerning the object field can be strongly reduced.
