Effect of spurious diffraction orders in arbitrary multifoci patterns produced via phase-only holograms

Palima, Darwin; Daria, Vincent Ricardo


We analyze the effect of spurious diffraction orders when generating functional multifoci patterns produced by illuminating a phase-only hologram with a single Gaussian beam. Using a practical device for encoding a hologram generates an undesirable zero order and high-diffraction orders at the Fourier plane. This translates to the fact that a significant fraction of the incident light does not necessarily convert to functional multifoci patterns. In most applications, the zero order can be...[Show more]
