Paper Abstract

Gray scale deformable grating spatial light modulators have been fabricated using surface MEMS processes and are being tested prior to integration with addressing silicon backplanes. Modulation rates in excess of 100 kHz have been observed with test devices as have modulation depths nearing 40 dB.
