This paper describes how the standard microchannel spatial light modulator can be (a) operated and (b) modified to generate a real-time, high-gamma readout characteristic. The paper also examines the use of such a device in a pulse-frequency modulation optical processor to achieve a wide range of real-time, nonlinear image and signal processing operations such as histogram measurement, density slicing, density-based artificial stereo and gray level image enhancement.
