The LC 2012 Spatial Light Modulator is based on a transmissive Liquid Crystal (LC) microdisplay with 1024 x 768 pixel resolution. The SLM provides a phase shift of about 2 π at 450 nm, about 1.8 π at 532 nm and around 1 π at 800 nm. The microdisplay and drive electronics are packaged into a compact box for easy integration into optical setups. The LC 2012 is addressed using a standard HDMI interface and brigtness and contrast settings can be performed using an USB interface.
|Special Optical Features:|
|- Translucent Liquid Crystal Microdisplay||- Amplitude or Phase Mostly Modulation|
|- 2 π @ 450 nm, 1.8 π @ 532 nm, 1 π @ 800 nm (Phase Mostly Modulation)||- Intensity Ratio of 1000:1 @ 633 nm|
The LC 2012 Spatial Light Modulator can be used for phase (phase mostly) and amplitude modulation applications dependent on the configuration. High transmittance and high contrast of the LC panel guarantee an excellent image quality.

LC 2012 Spatial Light Modulator – Software Features:
The LC 2012 spatial light modulator devices can simply be addressed like an external monitor using the standard DVI / HDMI interface of the graphics card. No additional software or dedicated hardware is needed to operate the SLM.
The LC 2012 SLM is delivered with a simple Configuration Manager software. The Configuration Manager can be used to change the brightness and contrast of the LC 2012 display and for vertical flipping of the image. This requires an USB connection to the LC 2012 driver.
In addition a HOLOEYE SLM Pattern Generator Software is provided with the device. Key features of which are:
- Computation of computer generated holograms (CGH) from user defined images
- generation of SLM signals representing basic optical functions such as lenses, gratings, axicon and vortex functions
- superposition of CGH’s with basic optical functions to combine functionalities
