Abstract

Sensitometry and the spatial-frequency response of a PROM SLM are evaluated with special emphasis on positive-mode operation. Spatial uniformity, the effects of crystal strain, and the readout decay characteristics are examined. The positive mode is 100 times more sensitive and has better linearity than the negative mode, but the spatial bandwidth is less by a factor of 0.17. Spatial variations of crystal strain cause deviations in γ of as much as 42% of its strain-free value.
