Abstract:

THE PROPOSED WORK AIMS TO DEVELOP NOVEL, HIGH PERFORMANCE SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS (SLM) MADE FROM ARRAYS OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL (FLC) LIGHT VALVES. THE FLC TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS SIMPLE, ECONOMICAL FABRICATION OF SLMS WITH A LARGE NUMBER OF ELEMENTS THAT CAN BE EASILY ADDRESSED EITHER ELECTRONICALLY OR OPTICALLY. PERFORMANCE FEATURES INCLUDE SUBMICROSECOND WRITE TIMES, HIGH OPTICAL THROUGHPUT, HIGH CONTRAST, EITHER LOW-VOLTAGE, LOW-POWER ELECTRONIC OR OPTICAL ADDRESSING. PHASE I WILL DEVELOP A HIGH-RESOLUTION 128 X 128 "PROOFOF-CONCEPT" SLM. DURING PHASE II, HIGHER SPEED SLMS WITH A LARGER NUMBER OF ELEMENTS WILL BE DEVELOPED; ALSO AT THIS TIME, OPTICAL ADDRESSING SCHEMES WILL BE DEVELOPED.
