Hologram paper in Optics Express

The Helmerson lab’s work on high efficiency, low cost holographic optical elements for ultracold atom trapping has been published in Optics Express! You can read about how we create static elements to avoid using an SLM directly on our apparatusĀ atĀ https://doi.org/10.1364/OE.25.000296
