Paper Abstract

A parametric analysis is conducted for device and system design issues associated with the miniaturization of a hybrid optical correlator that incorporates an electronically addressed liquid-crystal spatial light modulator (SLM). Attention is given to the requirements of drive and readout electronics, as well as the associated optics. The parametrics resolve around the SLM, which is the correlator size-limiting element; emphasis is accordingly placed on the importance of small pixel pitch and minimization of ''dead space'' in order to maximize the miniaturized correlator''s performance.
