Abstract

We present a multiple-input, single-output, weakly nonlinear model of spatial light modulators by use of a second-order Volterra series and describe an experimental method to measure the nonlinear transfer functions by means of sinusoidal perturbation and synchronous detection with a lock-in amplifier. We also present an application of this method to a liquid-crystal light valve.
