Abstract

An interlaced polarization computer-generated hologram [PCGH] is designed to produce specific irradiance and polarization states in the image plane. The PCGH produces a tangentially polarized annular pattern with correlated speckle, which is achieved by a novel application of the diffuser optimization method. Alternating columns of orthogonal linear polarizations illuminate an interlaced PCGH, producing a ratio of polarization of 88% measured on a fabricated sample. The demonstrated technique can be applied to designs for arbitrary irradiance and polarization states in the image plane.
