Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the present state of development of a high performance infrared image transducer for use in advanced real time infrared image simulation. This transducer is based on the Silicon Liquid Crystal Light Valve technology developed at Hughes Research Laboratories and consists of a high resistivity single crystal silicon photoconductor coupled with an oxide layer to form a MOS structure; a liquid crystal is used as the modulator. Results are presented for simulations in the 8 to 12 μm spectral region.
