In this paper, we present a simple and flexible non-interferometric method to generate various polarization singularity lattice fields. The proposed method is based on a double modulation technique that uses a single reflective spatial light modulator to generate different lattice structures consisting of V-point and C-point polarization singularities. The present technique is compact with respect to previous experimental realization techniques. Different structures having star and lemon fields are generated without altering the experimental setup. In addition, the same setup can be used to obtain different types of inhomogeneous fields embedded with isolated polarization singularities even of higher orders. The Stokes polarimetry method has been used to obtain the polarization distributions of generated fields, which are in good agreement with simulated results.
