Abstract

Focusing diffractive optical elements encoded in liquid-crystal spatial light modulators yields an inherent equivalent apodization of the focused spot as a result of the pixelated nature of these devices and the finite extent of each pixel. We present a theoretical explanation for and experimental evidence of this effect. We demonstrate an experimental procedure for measuring the apodization and a method to compensate for this effect.
