Webinar: Spatial Light Modulators – Status and Potential for Holography

Spatial Light Modulators (SLM) play a central role in various application areas such as but not limited to image projection, wavefront control and light beam steering. There are liquid crystal as well as MEMS based types of modulators. The webinar will present three different talks from SLM experts addressing different complementary SLM variants. Special focus will be given to the perspective of using SLMs for computer generated holography applications, up to real holographic 3D displays without negative physiological side effects. The introductory talk will be given by an outstanding well known expert for augmented, virtual, and mixed reality displays. The mixture of contributions is intended to initiate interdisciplinary follow-up discussions of presenters and the webinar audience.
