Paper Abstract

The PEMLM has been used to demonstrate several real-time image-processing operations: contrast reversal, edge enhancement, image addition/subtraction, and synchronous detection of time-modulated light in a scene. Experimental results will be presented, and the relationship between the device physical parameters and performance characteristics will be discussed. Future developments to improve the PEMLM performance will also be described. Demonstration of quantum-limited sensitivity, millions of resolution elements, and frame rates greater than a kilohertz is expected in the near future.
