The theory of speckle noise in a scanning beam is presented. The general formulas for the calculation of speckle contrast, which apply to any scanning display, are obtained. It is shown that the main requirement for successful speckle suppression in a scanning display is a narrow autocorrelation peak and low sidelobe level in the autocorrelation function of(More)
An optical scheme for speckle suppression using two or three partially coherent beams in a projection system is proposed. Diffractive optical elements (DOE) placed in the intermediate image plane create several beams carrying the image to a screen. Transparent plates of different thicknesses are placed in the Fourier plane of the projective lens and used(More)
A new type of probe for the near-field optical microscope incorporating metallic strips on the surface of a dielectric cone (microstrip probe) is proposed. The numerical simulation has shown a significant improvement in optical efficiency for this type of probe compared with the conventional probe. It was found theoretically that scanning near-field optics(More)
The mathematical model of a speckle-suppression method based on two Barker code-type diffractive optical elements (DOEs) moving in orthogonal directions is developed. The analytic formulae for speckle suppression efficiency are obtained. The model indicates that the one pair of DOEs can be used for laser beams of different colors. The speckle contrast is(More)
Aberration and defocusing effects in the mechanism of speckle suppression in laser projection displays were studied using the Fresnel approximation and the thin lens model. The analysis was performed with the assumption that aberrations change only the phase (and not the amplitude) in the rear principal plane of the display projection system. The analysis(More)
We report enhanced magneto-optical Kerr rotation in the layer systems of a magnetic granular film coated by uniform gold and dielectric films. The Kerr rotation spectra measured from 1.2 to 5 eV show a peak at about 2.7 eV, not present in either uncoated magnetic particle films. It was shown that the polar magneto-optical Kerr signal is about five times(More)
The quasi-spiral 2D diffractive optical element (DOE) based on M-sequence of length N=15 is designed and manufactured. The speckle suppression efficiency by the DOE rotation is measured. The speckle suppression coefficients of 10.5, 6, and 4 are obtained for green, violet, and red laser beams, respectively. The results of numerical simulation and(More)
We present the first general theoretical description of speckle suppression efficiency based on an active diffractive optical element (DOE). The approach is based on spectral analysis of diffracted beams and a coherent matrix. Analytical formulae are obtained for the dispersion of speckle suppression efficiency using different DOE structures and different(More)
