Paper Abstract

We review GaAs Fabry-Perot vertical cavity electro-optical devices constructed at Lockheed Martin Sanders, with particular attention to spatial light modulators and discuss a number of their applications. Our manufacturing processes enable the construction of large format, highly-uniform optical modulator and smart pixel arrays integrated with silicon CMOS VLSI circuitry. These devices can be used for a wide variety of applications including: optical computing for target recognition and signal processing, optical data routing, optical interconnect systems, and optical memory storage and access.
