Abstract

The contrast ratio and the speed of a 16 × 16 electrically addressed spatial light modulator, composed of a ferroelectric liquid-crystal layer on top of a VLSI silicon backplane, are measured with different methods but consistent results. The results are presented and compared with recently reported results on a similar spatial light modulator [Appl. Opt. 33, 2775 (1994)].
