Paper Abstract

The Microchannel spatial light modulator is an optically-addressed spatial light modulator that is being developed for low-light-level, real-time, optical signal processing. In addition to its framed or continuous real-time mode of operation, it can also be used for short-time (hours), low resolution (less than 20 cycles/mm) optical information storage. In this Paper we describe the structure of the device, its principles of operation, some of its preliminary characteristics, and the first attempts at optical information storage.
