Abstract

Amplitude and phase control of the output beam of a multimode LMA fiber supporting 4 modes is demonstrated by digital holography in both continuous and ns pulsed regimes at 1064 nm. Our system allows dynamic compensation of beam pointing instabilities, external perturbations introducing low order aberrations and fluctuations of the relative phase of the modes supported by the fiber.
