The architecture, operation, and performance of a new two-dimensional, optically addressed, membrane spatial light modulator are described. The modulator, the Optical-to-Optical Deformable Mirror Device (OTO-DMD), can be used to convert incoherent images to coherent images for optical information processing applications.
