Abstract

We show experimental results for programmable polarization multiplexing of diffractive optical elements (DOEs) onto two liquid-crystal displays (LCDs). The first LCD encodes the two multiplexed phase-only diffractive optical elements. The second LCD acts as a pixelated polarization rotator to change the polarization state for each of these two DOEs. Although the system requires precise alignment, the DOE's and polarization angles are fully programmable.
