Paper Abstract

The light modulator using the variation of the light scattering properties of a shape memory alloy with temperature when the phase martensitic transformation occurs is described. It is shown that the modulator has a response time of about 8 microsecond(s) , an optical contrast of more than 20 dB, and spectral range of modulated radiation from 0.1 to 1.5 micrometers .
