Abstract

We present experimental results showing that the reverse phase contrast (RPC) technique is a viable method for the generation of a binary phase distribution from a spatially varying amplitude pattern using Fourier plane filtering techniques. Experimental results are shown for the generation of a binary 0-π phase only distribution using either an amplitude mask or a spatial light modulator to provide the input and the results are shown to be in agreement with theoretical predictions for the RPC technique.
