Generation of integer and fractional vector beams with q-plates encoded onto a spatial light modulator

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We generate programmable vector beams with arbitrary q-plates encoded using a spatial light modulator system. Consequently, we can analyze new and exotic q-plate designs without the difficulty of fabricating individual plates. We show experimental results for positive and negative integer and new fractional vector beam values.
