Abstract

Optically addressed spatial light modulator (OASLM) works by using the intensity of a 'write' light to modulate the phase of a 'read' light. OASLM using ZnO nanoparticles (NP) as photoconductor is important to holographic displays because of its record-high spatial resolution. However, its response time to the write light is long and the switch-off time (τoff) can take tens of seconds due to the trap states in the ZnO NP layer. This results in residual images and poses limitations to its application in dynamic holographic displays. In this work, ZnO NP photoconductor was replaced by solution-processed ZnO NP / PEDOT:PSS heterojunction photodiode and the τoff of OASLM was significantly reduced to about 0.6 s. Electrical and optical properties of the heterojunction were characterized and a barrier height of 0.604 eV was determined by CV measurement. The heterojunction-based OASLM was then fabricated and its light modulating performance was investigated by using a diffractive phase grating. Finally, impedance spectroscopy was used to analysis the device equivalent circuit and optimize the operation of the OASLM.
