Paper Abstract

Electra-optic shutters that operate at a kilohertz rate have been demonstrated with nematic liquid crystals operated in the surface-mode or π-cell configuration. This principle has been employed to fabricate an NLC photoaddressed spatial light modulator that is faster than twisted-nematic devices.
