Some of the optical characteristics of a recently developed solid-state deformable-mirror spatial light modulator have been investigated. The device is composed of an array of 128 × 128 pixels, with each pixel consisting of four hinged reflective rectangular surfaces. Modulation at video frame rates has been achieved, providing real-time displays in coherent light, which may be useful for a variety of optical processing and computing applications.
