Abstract

Measurements are reported of the optical transmission and the contrast ratio for single pixel elements of the magnetooptic spatial light modulator consisting of both LLC and GGG materials having antireflection coatings and different thicknesses. The LLC material shows superior transmission values compared with the GGG material. High contrast ratios are reported with both materials, with the highest value being 45,000/1.
