Paper Abstract

The reflective type optically addressed spatial light modulators (OASLMs) with an amorphous hydrogenated carbon (a- C:H) light-blocking layer (LBL) sandwiched between an intrinsic hydrogenated silicon carbide (a-Si:C:H) photoconductor and broad-band and narrow-band dielectric mirrors have been developed. FLC was used as a light modulating medium. The DHF effect in an FLC with tilt angle (Theta) equals 39 degrees and SS (Clark-Lagerwall) effect with angle 22,5 degree(s) were employed. The study showed that a flexible design of the OASLMs are possible. As a result of optimal design of the reflective type OASLMs with the dielectric mirrors of two types, the following performance characteristics have been obtained. Diffraction efficiency (DE) was about 30%, net diffraction efficiency (NE) was about 20% (spatial frequency equal 30 lp/mm and frame refreshment rate equal 200 Hz). This net diffraction efficiency practically does not depend on the direction of the reading- out light polarization for the OASLMs operating on the DHF mode.
