High-Speed Multilevel Phase/Amplitude Spatial Light Modulator Advances
Published in SPIE Proceedings, Volume 3715. https://doi.org/10.1117/12.341288.
Recent and near-term advancements in our multi-level (analog) phase/amplitude liquid crystal spatial light modulators will be presented. These advancements include higher resolution, smaller pixel pitch, planarized pixel pads, and higher speed modulation for phase-only, amplitude-only, and phase-amplitude-coupled modulation. These devices have applications in optical processing, optical storage, holographic display, and beam steering. Design criteria and experimental data will be presented.
