Paper Abstract

In an optically addressed SLM there are many possible trade offs in device performance. Typically performance is altered by modification of the detailed device design, and also by modification of the electrical drive scheme. In this paper we show how it is also possible to change the device performance by changing the polarisation characteristics of the incident read light. We discuss the operation of an MRC amorphous silicon/nematic SLM under two distinct polarisation conditions, evaluate the device performance and relate this to potential applications.
