Abstract:

WE PROPOSED HEREIN AN INTEGRATED SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATOR (SLM) EMPLOYING QUANTEX ELECTRON TRAPPING (ET) MATERIALS. THEPROPOSED SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATOR OFFERS UNIQUE ADVANTAGES OVER OTHER SLM DEVICES, SUCH AS: CAPABILITY OF CONVERTING INCOHERENT TO COHERENTLIGHT; CAPABILITY OF FUNCTIONING AS A PHOTODETECTOR; HIGH SPEED COST EFFECTIVENESS; AND HIGH RESOLUTION. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS/POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS - IF THIS RESEARCH IS SUCCESSFUL THE COST-EFFECTIVE BUT HIGH PERFORMANCE ET MATERIAL BASED SLM WITH THE CAPABILITY OFDETECTION AND INCOHERENT TO COHERENT LIGHT CONVERSION CAN MEET OPTICAL PROCESSING REQUIREMENTS. SOME FUNCTIONS INTRODUCED BY SUCH AN SLM ARE MEMORY, FRAME INTERACTION AND ANALOG OPERATION. IT IS PREDICTED THAT THE COMMERCIAL BREAKTHROUGH FOR SLMS WILL COME WHEN 1000 X 1000 PIXELS ARRAY CAN RUN AT 1KHZ FRAME RATE.
