    Abstract

    We discuss a powerful technique for removing optical aberrations from optical systems with a spatial light modulator. In optical trapping systems this technique enables compensating for wavefront and amplitude deviations directly at the sample chamber thus bringing significant enhancement of optical trapping performance.
