Digital micromirror devices (DMD) provide a robust platform with which to implement digital holography, in principle providing the means to rapidly generate propagating transverse electromagnetic fields with arbitrary mode profiles at visible and IR wavelengths. We use a DMD to probe a Fabry-Pérot cavity in single-mode and near-degenerate confocal configurations. Pumping arbitrary modes of the cavity is possible with excellent specificity by virtue of the spatial overlap between the incident…

Coupling light to higher order transverse modes of a near-concentric optical cavity

A spatial light modulator is used to shape the phase of an incoming light beam to match several Laguerre-Gaussian modes of a near-concentric optical cavity, demonstrating coupling efficiency close to the theoretical prediction for single LG modes and well-defined combinations of them.

Ultra-precise holographic beam shaping for microscopic quantum control.

This work uses programmable amplitude holograms generated on a digital micromirror device to create arbitrary microscopic beam shapes with full phase and amplitude control, and demonstrates aberration-compensated beam shaping in an optical lattice experiment and single-site addressing in a quantum gas microscope for 87Rb.

In situ wavefront correction and its application to micromanipulation

In any optical system, distortions to a propagating wavefront reduce the spatial coherence of a light field, making it increasingly difficult to obtain the theoretical diffraction-limited spot size.
