Paper Abstract

An experiment was performed to demonstrate the holographic phase conjugation characteristics of a PLZT Integrated Spatial Light Modulator (ISLM) device. The ISLM was addressed with angularly separated reference and object beams. The aberrations of a colli-mated laser beam were stored in an ion-implanted sample of antiferroelectric (AFF) phase PLZT in the form of a fringe pattern resulting from the interference of the object beam with the reference beam. The angle of incidence between the beams was 0.4° and resulted in a resolution of approximately 15 line pairs per millimeter. The -1 diffracted order was directed back through the path of the object beam and the aberrations were cancelled. It was concluded that AFE-phase PLZT has sufficient diffraction efficiency for phase conjugation at higher resolutions which result from addressing with angularly separated beams.
