Paper Abstract

A numerical model has been developed that describes the electro-optical switching properties of an optically addressed spatial light modulator (OASLM). The OASLM device comprises of a hydrogenated amorphous silicon photosensitive layer with electrically blocking contacts, and a nematic liquid crystal light modulation layer. The model has been used to investigate the magnitudes of the switching voltages that give the largest operating window between the on (illuminated) and off (dark) states.
