We describe a closed-loop dynamic holographic adaptive optics system. This system can be realized via one liquid crystal spatial light modulator and one CCD camera. The liquid crystal spatial light modulator is used as the wavefront sensor and corrector, as well as imaging element. CCD detects the spots at holographic image plane and at focal plane of imaging channel simultaneously. The basic principle of the system is introduced first, and then the numerical analysis is presented. On this basis, we report a practical implementation of the dynamic holographic adaptive optics system. The results show that a rapid increase of Strehl ratio and improved image quality at focal plane for deliberately introduced aberrations can be achieved, verifying the feasibility of the system.
