Abstract

Spatial light modulators (SLMs) with submicron-size pixels are promising devices for use in wide-viewing-angle glasses-free holographic 3D displays. In accordance with estimations, an SLM with 1 μm pitch pixels can display holographic images over viewing angles of 30 deg. In the present work, we have studied magneto-optic SLMs (MOSLMs) with submicron-size pixels for wide-viewing-angle holographic displays that are driven by thermomagnetic recording. Amorphous TbFe films were used as a magneto-optic material. The MOSLM with an 800 nm diameter pixels array displayed wide-viewing-angle holographic images. These results demonstrated that MOSLMs with submicron-size pixels have promise for glasses-free holographic 3D displays.
