A novel method of correcting the aberrations of holographic projectors is presented. The method employs an optimization algorithm to determine an aberration-correcting phase mask composed of 13 Zernike Polynomials. The mask can be used thereafter to correct every image produced by the projector. Two optimization algorithms are demonstrated: a hybrid genetic steepest descent algorithm and a heuristic variant of steepest descent. The primary advantage of these methods is that no modifications of… 

Adaptive, spatially-varying aberration correction for real-time holographic projectors.

A method of generating an aberration- and distortion-free wide-angle holographically projected image in real time is presented and is found to offer hologram generation times up to three orders of magnitude faster than the standard method.
