Paper Abstract

We have developed laboratory prototypes of nematic and ferroelectric liquid crystal optically addressed spatial light modulators with photosensitive layers based on ZnSe, alpha-SiH, pin alpha-SiH, alpha-SiCH, and pin alpha-SiCH. The SLM performance characteristics measured using standard projection and holographic techniques are presented. The advantages and shortcoming of different SLM design versions are analyzed for the use in the wavefront correction and dynamic hologram recording systems. The examples are given for specific implementation of the SLMs in these systems.
