Abstract
FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS (FLCS) EXHIBIT LOW VOLTAGE, LOW POWER ELECTRO-OPTIC SWITCHING WITH VERY FAST (MICROSECOND) RESPONSE AND HIGH OPTICAL EFFICIENCY. THESE CHARACTERISTICS MAKE POSSIBLE THE APPLICATION OF FLCS IN COMBINATION WITH A HYDROGENATED AMORPHOUS SILICON (ASI:H) PHOTOSENSING LAYERS TO MAKE OPTICALLY ADDRESSED SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS. THE PROPOSED WORK WILL DEVELOP FLC, ASI:H, AND CELL COMPONENT MATERIALS FOR THIS APPLICATION.
