We demonstrate how to make a twisted nematic liquid crystal display act as a programmable wave plate array. This is an unusual phase plate because the orientations of the fast and slow axes are rotated from one side of the display to the other. © 2002 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers.
