Paper Abstract

An account is given of the design features and performance capabilities of a coherent optical spectrum analyzer based on an electrically addressable matrix magnetooptic spatial light modulator (MMOSLM). Attention is given to the spectra of spatially periodic and aperiodic images, as well as to the optimization of MMOSLM operational regimes to enhance stability and reduce power consumption. It is demonstrated that hundreds of periodic images and tens of aperiodic ones can be easily recognized by the spectrum analyzer, using MMOSLM fragments as small as 16 x 16. The nature of input errors experienced during MMOSLM recoding is discussed.
