Abstract

We report the realization of an adaptive holographic interferometer based on two-beam coupling in an optically addressed liquid crystal spatial light modulator operating at 1.55-μm. The system allows efficient phase demodulation in noisy environment and behaves as an optical high-pass filter, with a cut-off frequency of approximately 10 Hz, thus filtering slow phase disturbances (due to, for example, temperature variations or low frequency fluctuations) and keeping the detection linear without the need of heterodyne or active stabilization.
