Paper Abstract

We demonstrated a flat-surface magneto-optic spatial light modulator (MOSLM) without physically isolated pixels and an external bias coil. The flat-surface MOSLM, which was fabricated by a simple process, was designed as a compact system with a high resolution and very low driving current. Flat-surface pixels for the novel MOSLM were magnetically isolated and produced by the combinatory use of the local annealing effect that reduced magnetization 4πMs of pixel areas and the stress effect that produced sharp variations of magnetic anisotropy in a magnetic garnet film under the edge of a metal layer. The novel MOSLM can provide a higher resolution, a simpler fabrication process, more compact systems and a lower driving current than the conventional MOSLM.
