G. Livescu, D. A. B. Miller, J. E. Henry, A. C. Gossard, and J. H. English, "Spatial light modulator and optical dynamic memory using a 6 x 6 array of self-electro-optic-effect devices," Optics Letters, 13, 297-299, (1988).

Using a 6*6 array of integrated quantum-well self-electro-optic-effect devices, the authors demonstrate an optically addressed spatial light modulator able to convert a visible, incoherent image into coherent infrared (IR) light. Depending on the IR wavelength used, the output is either a positive, binary-thresholded version of the input (bistable mode) or its linear, negative (self-linearized) mode. This device can also function as a dynamic bistable memory that can retain its internal state without power for times as long as 30 sec
