Abstract

A phase-only spatial light modulator is used in conjunction with a spatial filter to provide independent control of the phase and amplitude of a laser beam. Continuous amplitude modulation of the beam is achieved with a resolution relevant to beam shaping of high-energy laser beams. Amplitude beam correction in a closed loop is demonstrated.
