Abstract : This patent application discloses an amorphous silicon spatial light modulator that includes a unique three electrode structure that is used to create a two-dimensional electric field distribution in liquid crystal material. This modulator allows for the use of very thin photoconductor layers and a middle electrode in the form of a grating structure to provide control of the field shape while also providing for high spatial resolution.
