Abstract

A reflective-type liquid crystal (LC) wavefront corrector with modal addressing is described. The corrector's backplane has an array of pixel electrodes interconnected by a network of discrete resistors. The resistive network serves to form the local voltage profile that controls the phase distribution generated in the liquid crystal layer. This design is realized in a bipolar silicon technology. Preliminary numerical analysis is presented; technology and experimental results are discussed.
