Paper Abstract

We examine the spatial resolution of pixelated-metal-mirror (PMM) ferroelectric-liquid-crystal (FLC) optically addressed spatial light modulators (OASLMs). To characterize the resolution of OASLM devices, their diffraction efficiency is measured as a function of the spatial frequency of the write image. The results show that aliasing is produced by the PMM devices, which correspond qualitatively with the predictions of sampling theory.
