Abstract
The recent availability of inexpensive, video-addressable liquid crystal displays has generated interest in the use of such devices for optical processing applications. This paper will present some pertinent performance characteristics for a device of this type, the Radio Shack (Tandy Corp.) Pocketvision. Specific characteristics to be considered are screen transmission, linearity, modulation depth, modulation transfer function (MTF), temporal response and optical flatness. Examples of device performance as a coherent and incoherent processing element will be briefly considered.
