    A Spatial Light Modulator for Steering Quantum Walks with Single-Site Precision, (2017), Master thesisBibTeX

    This master thesis investigates the potential application of a Liquid Crystal on Silicon Spatial Light Modulator for control of the coin flip operation in a two-dimensional quantum walk. First, the phase noise characteristics of two such modulators from different manufacturers are analyzed. Then an optical setup is constructed to perform holography using phase modulation. The evaluation of this setup verifies pattern generation capability and shows further directions for improvement of image quality.
