Abstract

The need for DC balancing phase pixels in ferroelectric liquid-crystal-on-silicon spatial light modulators leads to control schemes that limit their use in beam steering applications where a continuous display of a routing hologram is required. By analyzing the phase redundancy in binary phase holograms, a new DC balancing algorithm has been developed that allows more general beam splitting and multiple beam steering functions. The theoretical derivation of the algorithm and experimentally measured properties of the optical beams are presented and discussed.
