Paper Abstract

The structure, operation and performance of the silicon-based liquid crystal light valves: the photoactivated, CCD-addressed and visible-to-IR converter are described. The performance limitations of the readout structure, in particular, those affecting resolution, sensitivity, contrast ratio and speed, are discussed.
