Boulder Nonlinear Systems Details Development of High-Speed 1536 × 1536 SLM in New SPIE Proceedings Article
LAFAYETTE, Colorado | September 9, 2019
The development of Boulder Nonlinear Systems (BNS) 1536 × 1536-pixel spatial light modulator (SLM) is described in an article titled “Designing a new spatial light modulator for holographic photostimulation,” published today in the Proceedings of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). The article accompanies a presentation given by lead author and BNS Sr. Research Scientist Dr. Janelle Shane, also available on the SPIE Proceedings website. The article itself can also be accessed through arXiv.org.
The article describes the design rationale behind the development of the 1536 × 1536 SLM, also known as the MacroSLM, as well as the feature set that makes this system uniquely adapted to the needs of the holographic photostimulation community.
This article expands upon the technical details of the system first published by researchers at BNS, the Deisseroth Lab at Stanford University, and the University of Tokyo in the journal Science.
