Paper Abstract

The Grating Light Valve diffractive MOEMS device has been successfully used in imaging applications (lithography and display) requiring image data-rates of 1-5 giga-bits per second (Gb/s). However, new applications such as maskless photolithography and high performance displays require larger pixel counts and finer control of gray-scale. This paper discusses the suitability of the GLV device for high data-rate applications. It discusses the factors governing GLV device switching speed and illustrates how these properties are optimized relative to other requirements of the imaging system.
