Abstract

In the multiple-plane phase retrieval method, a tedious-to-fabricate phase diffuser plate is used to increase the axial intensity variation for a nonstagnating iterative reconstruction of a smooth object wavefront. Here we show that a spatial light modulator (SLM) can be used as an easily controllable diffuser for phase retrieval. The polarization modulation at the SLM facilitates independent formation of orthogonally polarized scattered and specularly reflected beams. Through an analyzer, the polarization states are filtered enabling beam interference, thereby efficiently encoding the phase information in the axially diverse speckle intensity measurements. The technique is described using wave propagation and Jones calculus, and demonstrated experimentally on technical and biological samples.
