Santec introduces Liquid Crystal on Silicon spatial light modulator

SANTEC introduced a high-power, durable LCOS spatial light modulator (SLM) with enhanced Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS). The SLM-300 has been tested to withstand up to 200 Watts of power, making it the world’s most durable SLM. Target applications include high-power laser processing, 3D-Printing and IC trimming applications.


  • 100 times higher power durability (up to CW 200 Watts in Visible ~ IR) compared to the SLM-200
  • High precision resolution, WUXGA (1920 x 1200) and Full-HD (1920 x 1080) support
  • 10 times higher relative phase stability (~0.002 Ď€rad) than conventional products
  • 4 times superior 10-bit (1024 gray level) than conventional products
