Paper Abstract

The fundamental operating characteristics and materials limitations of the optically addressed microchannel spatial light modulator (MSLM) are discussed. The role of secondary electron emission in the operation of the device is stressed, and some of the write, cycling, and readout modes, and their limitations, are described. In addition, the limitations of the inherent space-domain image processing operations of the device are discussed.
