Abstract

We consider the use of a ferroelectric liquid-crystal spatial light modulator (FLC SLM) to control the transmittance of a telescope pupil to compensate for the effects of scintillation. Our aim here is to prove the necessary and physically interesting result that it is possible to control the intensity of light by use of FLC SLM without inducing further phase aberrations. Furthermore, we show that system errors have only a small effect on the phase of the transmitted beam.
