Abstract
This paper presents lateral spatial resolution improvement by scanning a focused spot array pattern. To enhance the effective point spread function (PSF), we employed a phase-only computer generated hologram (CGH) that can reduce the spot size comparing to the single diffraction limited spot. A CGH was designed based on the Gerchberg-Saxton algorithm with a specific constraint to control the dispersion of light energy and the phase of generated spots. As a design example, we obtained a CGH for generating 3x3 optical spots whose sizes were reduced to 78.5% of the single diffraction limited spot. We also confirmed by simulation that the effective PSF was improved from 208 nm to 183 nm when using the subdiffraction limit spots for excitation.
