Abstract:

During this contract, we accomplished the following major tasks toward the development of a CCD liquid-crystal light valve. We have demonstrated a fully operational CCD LCLV with a contrast ratio of 501 and a spatial resolution of 12 lines across the device. An alternative chip dicing method has been developed that reduces degradation to the substrate by a factor of 100. In addition, a new CCD LCLV packaging technique has been developed that improves the light valve fabrication yield from 30 to 80. Author
