Abstract

We have generated 81 independently controllable beams using a spatial light modulator and combined them on a diffractive combiner, to characterize the combiner and develop a fast phase error detection scheme. A key parameter of the diffractive combiner is measured in a new way, enabling an efficient combination when programming calibrated phases of each beam. This testbed provides a platform for development of advanced feedback phase control of high channel-count beam combination.
