Deliver on the dreams and prosperity

SANTEC develops improved response speed LCOS-type spatial light modulator (model:SLM-210).

Product name: Spatial Light Modulator
Module code: SLM-210

SANTEC, a leading design and manufacturer of tunable lasers, optical instruments, OCT products, and fiber-optic components, has developed new LCOS-type spatial light modulators (LCOS-SLM) (Module code : SLM-210) with significantly improved response speed as a high performance product. It uses its second generation LCOS technology.
SLM-210 is a LCOS-SLM with a response time of less than 10ms, which is more than 20 times faster than the conventional LCOS-SLM. It is expected to contribute to the improvement of performance in optical applications such as wavefront correction, optical beam shaping for laser processing, biosensing and quantum computing.

The new product will be exhibited at BiOS/Photonics West 2022, San Francisco, USA from January 22, 2022 at SANTEC booth #8327(BiOS)/3327(Photonics West)
Santec canceled the physical presence at BiOS / PhotonicsWest 2022.
