This paper presents a description and design considerations for silicon/PLZT spatial light modulators (Si/PLZT SLMs) which provide high parallel processing power, dynamic range, cellular resolution, sensitivity and the potential for implementation of "smart" optical devices. Following an overview of Si/PLZT SLMs, we discuss potential performance with respect to fundamental limits. Finally, we predict performance in specific applications. This analysis suggests that Si/PLZT SLMs can play an important role in the implementation of a variety of optical processing and computing systems.
