Paper Abstract

Deformed-helix ferroelectric liquid-crystal media with high molecular tilt angles have been used in spatial light modulators to make them faster and more efficient. A prototype device developed for real-time holography applications has generated diffraction efficiencies as high as 38 percent and response times as short as 600 microsecond(s) ec.
