Here is a small experimental chatbot designed to answer questions about wavefront shaping.

The model is trained on the full text transcript of, as well as a collection of hundreds of transcripts of wavefront shaping-related articles and abstracts.

Compensating for phase drifts in holographic measurements

Red dot

Digital holography allows measuring the complex amplitude of a given wavefront. We presented in detail the off-axis holography approach. However, it requires a separate reference arm. Due to air flow, vibrations, or other perturbations, the optical path length difference between the two arms can fluctuate in time, even in controlled lab experiments on a good optical table. This means that the phase of the measured wavefront is estimated up to a global phase that can randomly change over time. This is very detrimental for transmission matrix measurements as the relative phase between each column has to be precisely estimated. This is particularly true when the measurement time can take few minutes or more when using a liquid crystal spatial light modulator that has a limited frame rate. In [R. Mouthaan et al., Appl. Opt. (2022)], the authors propose a simple yet robust way to compensate for phase fluctuations, even when the phase changes completely between two frames.

Spatiotemporal control of light

Joel A. Carpenter
October 2021

Gerchberg-Saxton is a phase retrieval algorithm, which attempts to retrieve the phase corresponding to two intensity images taken in the near and far-field respectively. It can also be used for calculating computer-generated holograms (phase masks) that generate a desired.
