Paper Abstract

We describe initial results from a module built using the Thermal Light ValveTM (TLV) - a diffractive thin film spatial light modulator that provides high response to long-wavelength infrared radiation. In this paper we briefly describe a differential-mode TLV device, its solid state structure, readout system configuration, and performance parameters. We describe the architecture of an 80x60 OpTICTM thermal imaging module based on the TLV, and give some early imaging results. We review the manufacturability of the component and module and the implication for low-cost thermal imaging.
