Hands-on workshop for computer-generated holography

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The University of Arizona's College of Optical Sciences held a three-day workshop to teach participants the design and fabrication of computer-generated holography (CGH) and Diffractive optical elements (DOE) using a custom maskless lithography tool. The maskless lithography tool is used by students to fabricate various DOEs and CHGs in photoresists and chrome masks. The students designed DOE to measure the focal length variation of the refractive lens and the DOE using red and green lasers. The students at the workshop also experimented with a CGH simulation program that incorporated 3-D properties of image reconstruction. The participating students and faculty applied the testing experience to evaluate aspheres for satellite applications.
