Benchmarking modern algorithms to holographically create optical tweezers for laser-cooled atoms

Abstract:

We discuss and compare three methods to generate holograms for optical tweezers: simple rounding, Floyd-Steinberg error diffusion dithering, and mixed region amplitude freedom (MRAF). These schemes are optimised for producing large arrays of tightly focused luminous spots. The algorithms are compared in terms of their speed, efficiency, and accuracy, for periodic arrangements of traps; an arrangement of particular interest for the trapping and manipulation of single laser-cooled atoms in the ...
