Abstract
Based on the Fraunhofer diffraction theory and the properties of dove prism, the coordinate relationships among the four spatial light modulator (SLM) sections in a vectorial optical field generator (VOF-Gen) are derived and experimentally verified. Taking the coordinate system of the first SLM section as reference, the coordinate displacements between the first SLM section and the subsequent ones are measured through employing the specially designed four-quadrant patterns with varying shifts of the corresponding cross point. Complex optical field could be accurately generated by combining the derived coordinate relationships and pre-compensation of the measured coordinate displacements. A typical complex optical field is generated and the experimental results demonstrate the validity of the proposed transverse alignment method for the VOF-Gen.
