Abstract
The photo-DKDP spatial light modulator is found to be an excellent candidate real-time and reusable 2-D optically-addressed spatial light modulator. Extensive sensitometry, MTF, and other device data are reported with emphasis on a new field dependent photo-sensitivity and the importance of linear MTF data. A new spatial birefringent modulation transfer function is described and its use in obtaining more linear device response, bias level suppression, phase modulation and 1 msec erase time are noted. New real-time image processing, optical pattern recognition, and optical signal processing applications of this SLM are described with emphasis on the accuracy of the photo-DKDP based real-time experiments.
