Implementation of a Phase Only Spatial Light Modulator as an Atmospheric Turbulence Simulator at 1550 nm
Left: a linear gamma table applied to the FLCSLM with its recorded phase response is shown. Right: the corrected gamma table is shown based on 256 measurement sets calibrated by the manufacturer’s algorithm. The corresponding linear phase response from 0 to 2π is shown in the image below the graph. The data presented in this figure was generated for calibration purposes using an algorithm provided by the company, which generated a 10-bit vector. The LUT values table used in the ATS was an 8-bit vector to make it compatible with the NRL software.
