Abstract

We present a shearing interferometer that is based on the birefringent properties of a phase-only spatial light modulator. The main advantages of this approach are the high flexibility, the robustness, and the light efficiency. In contrast to already existing methods the suppression of unwanted diffraction orders is not required.
