Abstract : The report describes the findings of a study of a discrete element magneto-optic display. The magneto-optic display is an electronically controllable diffraction grating which, by controlling the orientation of the grating at selected points, diffracts light toward an observer. The magneto-optic display device was first evaluated and then used as a research tool for further work in the magneto-optic display area. The remainder of the investigation was concerned with the optical, electronic, and memory aspects of the magneto-optic display. (Author)
