Abstract

The phase accuracy of an optical system for complex matrix multiplication is examined by using a novel harmonic analysis approach and a stochastic model for the complex optical transfer function spatial light modulators. The output phase bias and standard deviation are evaluated for matched and unmatched channel power gains. The conclusions drawn appear to be of general value in the numerous applications of spatial light modulators to optical information-processing systems.
