Paper Abstract

The reflective magneto-optic spatial light modulator (R-MOSLM) device was developed over the past few years by a group of Litton divisions and Carnegie Mellon University. The device has been fabricated into 128 X 128 arrays on 24 micron pitch. The performance of individual devices has been reported in previous years. This paper describes the use of the device in an optical correlator. Litton has been developing the miniature ruggedized optical correlator (MROC) for use in a variety of pattern recognition applications. This paper discusses the packaging of the device, the drive electronics, and the interfacing of the device to the MROC unit.
