Abstract : A spatial light modulator system having an electro-optic crystal responsive to infrared radiation. An electric field is established across opposed faces of crystal, and the field is modulated on a point by point basis over one crystal face using a suitable charge distribution write source. Infrared radiation traversing the crystal is modified in polarization in accordance with the pattern imposed on the crystal to simulate an infrared target for testing infrared seekers. Patents. (rh)
