Paper Abstract

A novel spatial light modulator (SLM) based on nonlinear absorption of light by excited molecules is suggested. A kinetic analysis is applied to calculate the relative populations of molecular levels in singlet and triplet manifolds. It is shown that for many actual cases a probe light can be modulated by propagating through a medium excited by another light source.
