Implementation of a Phase Only Spatial Light Modulator as an Atmospheric Turbulence Simulator at 1550 nm
(a) Light is reflected from the SLM into the Spiricon camera with no diffraction grating phase screen displayed on the SLM. (b) Light is reflected from the SLM displaying a diffraction grating phase screen. The gamma table for a linear phase response has been uploaded to the SLM. This shows 72% diffraction efficiency into the first order.
