Paper Abstract

A recent application of magneto optic technology to the development of magnetically switched light valves has resulted in devices satisfying many of the characteristics desired for real-time display and optical processing systems. Evaluation of prototype Units has shown the material to be well behaved exhibiting excellent uniformity and readily engineered into devices suitable for numerous applications. The fabrication processes, being similar to those currently employed by the semiconductor industry, are expected to result in high quality, high yield, and reliability and low cost. As a result, the future use of these devices appears to be almost unlimited.
