Abstract

The microchannel spatial light modulator (MSLM) is a versatile optically addressed spatial light modulator for optical computing and the optical neural network. In this paper the transfer characteristics of the MSLM are presented. The addressability and readability of the device and their relationships are discussed theoretically and experimentally from the viewpoint of the device structure and performance.
