Paper Abstract

A potentially high-performance, optically-addressed, spatial light modulator, called the photo-emitter membrane light modulator (PEMLM) is being developed. The operational theory of the PEMLM is presented, accompanied by a discussion of its ultimate performance objectives and limitations. The PEMLM offers the potential for framing rates in excess of 1kHz, 50 1p/mm resolution, storage times of days, extreme sensitivities of less than 1 nJ/cm2, and an intrinsic ability to perform such image processing operations as thresholding and hardclippiny, contrast reversal and enhancement, image addition and subtraction, and optical binary logic. A developmental laboratory prototype has been constructed.
