Paper Abstract

The use of monocrystalline gallium arsenide as a photoaddressing medium for a nematic liquid crystal spatial light modulator is reported. A GaAs-addressed nematic SLM is demonstrated with a limiting resolution of 37 1p/mm over a 30-mm aperture and a 100-Hz frame rate. The influence of the GaAs thickness on the SLM resolution is analyzed.
