Abstract
Development of optical information processing systems requires accurate models of the spatial light modulators employed in these systems. These models must recognize the multiport and non-linear nature of these devices. Here we describe the temporal characteristics of spatial light modulators by a quadratic multiport model. We use spectrum analysis and sinusoidal perturbation with synchronous detection to observe the nonlinear characteristics of a Hughes Model 4050 liquid crystal light valve. We present experimental results demonstrating some of the nonlinear characteristics.
