Abstract

Spatial light modulators are optimized to operate with light of one polarization entering the device at normal incidence. Most optical processors, however, require light to enter at other angles, some far from normal incidence and with varying (angle-dependent) polarization. We discuss the implications of the limited field of view of spatial light modulators for optical processing and propose a solution to this problem.
