Paper Abstract

A first-order analytical model which describes the imaging performance of the total internal reflection (TIR) linear array spatial light modulator is presented. Two modulator configurations are identified, each with a distinct imaging response. The modulator crystal orientation defines which image response model applies. Several optical readout techniques for converting the optical phase modulation into an intensity modulation are described.
