Optical-component-only adaptive optics improved setup

Abstract: This paper introduces a new technique for performing binary adaptive optics using optical components only, without the help of any electronic, or optoelectronic device. In this technique, the interferogram produced by the interference of a reference plane wave and the distorted wave modulates a light-driven crystal. The modulated light-driven crystal may produce pupil-plane only-phase or only-amplitude binary masks to mitigate phase aberrations. This new setup is more energy efficient and keeps the previous advantages as the capability of working unsupported. These features make it suitable for applications in hard-to-reach or hazardous locations such as satellites, underwater or contaminated places. The paper includes a simple experimental validation.
