Customer Feedback

Introduction of the voices of customers who use santec products(LCOS-SLM). You can check the specific usage image and spatial light modulator application.

Quantum Computer Research


A growing number of researchers are using Spatial Light Modulators to develop in the field of quantum computing research. We would like to introduce an application example from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Seven of Santec's SLM-200s, one SLM-300, and one SLM-210 were being used for the quantum computing research. (May 2022)

Computational Synthesis Hologram Research


Professor Yasuhiro Takaki, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, presents an application example. Spatial light modulators are used in computer-synthesized hologram research. At Tokyo University, Santec's SLMs are used in research on stereoscopic displays, holographic contact lens displays, and digital holography.

Micro/Nano Processing Experiments


"We use the SLM-200 for laser beam adjustment, wavefront correction, and micro-nanometer processing. The API of SLM-200 helped us to dynamically control the laser beam in micro-nanometer processing experiment."

Tianjin University


Wavefront Correction, 2D Phase Hologram

Dr. Moussa N'Gom, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA

"We use the SLM-200 to generate dynamic, large-scale optical focus arrays for applications in integrated photonics and quantum information science. The included wavefront correction data and detailed API helped us to quickly implement these techniques in the lab."

Mr. Christopher Panuski
Massachusetts Institute of Technology


Electromagnetic Interactions

Dr. Moussa N'Gom, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA

"The Santec SLM-200 provides our lab with the ability to precisely control wavefronts in our optical designs, manipulating the phase of our input beams to let us interrogate novel materials with very specific electromagnetic interactions. The high dynamic range and numerous wavelength options. The Santec SLMs afford us a variety of avenues to explore when optimizing our experimental designs."

Holographic Display

Dr. Moussa N'Gom, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA

"The Santec SLM-200 is incorporated into a interferometry setup to help us develop a holographic display. Using the SLM together with further computational processing, we are able to project a set of 2D object fields onto the SLM and make a 3D object out of it.

The Santec SLM converts phase patterns into 10-bit grayscale images helping us to acquire high dynamic range images for our display purposes."
