Abstract:We present a method for shaping point spread functions (PSF) into simple geometric shapes that are free of noise or speckles. The derived phase distributions are intended for typical 2f setups used for reading out computer generated holograms (CGH). Used in conjunction with existing CGH techniques for spot distributions the shaped PSFs can similarly be distributed on a 3D working volume. The PSF's contiguous intensity and phase make them beneficial in many applications such as photo-stimulation, optical manipu…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
