Abstract
The generation and manipulation of electromagnetic field distributions plays an essential role in physics in general, and particularly in the vast field of physical optics. In the current state of the art, one of the most convenient methods of performing this task is provided by either static or dynamic diffractive as well as holographic optical elements. Currently available dynamic optical elements, such as spatial light modulators, do offer on the one hand high temporal flexibility. They however have a limited space-bandwidth product (SBWP), and thus limited degrees of freedom. This arises primarily from a limitation in the number of controllable elements, the...
