dc.description.abstractParallel-aligned liquid crystal on silicon (PA-LCoS) displays have become the most attractive spatial light modulator device for a wide range of applications, due to their superior resolution and light efficiency, added to their phase-only capability. Proper characterization of their linear retardance and phase flicker instabilities is a must to obtain an enhanced application of PA-LCoS. We present a novel polarimetric method, based on Stokes polarimetry, we have recently proposed for the measurement of the linear retardance in the presence of phase fluctuations. This can be applied to electrooptic devices behaving as variable linear retarders, and specifically to PA-LCoS. The method is based on an extended Mueller matrix model for the linear retarder containing the time-averaged effects of the instabilities. We show experimental results which validate the predictive capability of the method. The calibrated retardance and phase fluctuation values can then be used to estimate the performance of the PA-LCoS device in spatial light modulation applications. Some results will be given.es
