Paper Abstract

We describe a new type of bistable, optically addressed ferroelectric liquid-crystal spatial light modulator to be used as a binary spatial register. The good contrast ratio of the devices suggests their use in cascaded architectures or in optical feedback loops. We investigate these cascading abilities with a view to digital optical computing applications.
