Abstract

Using a 6 × 6 array of integrated quantum-well self-electro-optic-effect devices, we demonstrate an optically addressed spatial light modulator able to convert a visible, incoherent image into coherent infrared (IR) light. Depending on the IR wavelength used, the output is either a positive, binary-thresholded version of the input (bistable mode) or its linear, negative (self-linearized) mode. This device can also function as a dynamic bistable memory that can retain its internal state without power for times as long as 30 sec.
