Paper Abstract

The magneto-optic spatial light modulator (MOSLM), commercially available through Semetex Corporation, has successfully been integrated into a variety of optical signal processing, optical pattern recognition, and optical computing applications. This paper reports improved device performance characteristics for the rotation angle, absorption coefficient, on-state transmission, and contrast ratio (68,000/1) for two formulations of the material, GGG and LLC. Device considerations for two dimensional arrays of pixels are covered including new measurements on high speed frame rate operation (up to 2000 frames/sec) and shock and vibration testing on the array. Finally, we will indicate some of the potential for this technology.
