Paper Abstract

Experimental results have been given on laser-damage resistance of the liquid crystal modulator with longitudinal operating electrical field. It was shown that laser-damage resistance of the modulator is limited by the ITO transparent electrodes and equals 2.5 - 2.9 J/cm2 at 1.06 nm, (tau) equals 15 ns. To improve this parameter we proposed an liquid crystal structure controlled by a transverse electric field in which the ITO electrodes are removed out of the zone intense laser radiation. The main characteristics of this mode liquid crystal modulator are discussed.
