Abstract

We have constructed and demonstrated a single-pixel implementation of an all-optical membrane-based spatial light modulator as a compact optical wave-front error correction device. High rates of response of as much as 20 kHz in an open-loop configuration were obtained. The device was then used in an adaptive-optics servo to compensate successfully for a 1-kHz sinusoidal phase error with a peak-to-peak excursion of approximately π/7 rad. A small-signal servo gain of the order of 10 was inferred from the closed-loop measurements.
