Abstract
The use of Spatial Light Modulators (SLM), Liquid Crystal Devices for atmospheric turbulence simulation in optical system has increased in the recent years. These devices allow the development of test-beds that can be used to simulate, analyze and improve optical components or systems in a controlled laboratory environment before further implementation on the eld. Most research has been performed at visible wavelengths with the use of a vast array of atmospheric turbulence simulation algorithms. We present preliminary work on an atmospheric simulation test bed which uses an algorithm developed at NRL with a transmissive high denition Liquid Crystal Device SLMs for applications in the short-wavelength infrared, with the main focus of interested at 1550nm. Preliminary results are shown for the application to a high denition re ective Liquid Crystal Device SLM for the same wavelength.
