Paper Abstract

Geometric parameters such as fill-factor, pixel shape, and array symmetry strongly affect the performance of membrane light modulators. A set of modeling tools that allow device performance evaluation as a function of these parameters have been developed. The models predict the effect of varying a given parameter and allow visualization of the result. The current modeling results are in good agreement with experimental observation and have formed the basis for computer-aided design of future generations of such devices.
