Abstract

The integration issues regarding liquid crystals and silicon-chip technology are discussed. A 12 × 12 active-matrix array is fabricated in silicon and addresses a ferroelectric liquid crystal. The structure and performance of the resulting electronically addressed spatial light modulator are reported.
