Paper Abstract

An Elastomer Storage Device (ESD) was constructed which has potential as an adaptive Spatial Filter in optical spectrum analysers. The ESD uses a PVK-TNF photoconductor and parallel plate charging in a low pressure Argon atmosphere. Resolution greater than 100 cycles/mm and a time-bandwidth product in excess of 1. 6 x 106 have been measured. A photometric sensitivity of 5μ J/cm2 at 515.4nm was observed. The linear dynamic range in the Fourier plane was measured to be 40db. The device has a lifetime in excess of 107 cycles at a frame rate of 10 cycles/second.
