Optical Computing has long been heralded as the solution to the world’s thirst for data processing. As speed and resolution limits are approached and power requirements become ever more impractical, serial electronic processing begins to show its limitations.
Optical processing uses the fastest medium there is to perform the same calculations serial electronic systems grind away at: light. CCL’s optical processing technology applies the principles of Fourier and Diffractive optics to create solutions in areas requiring processing capabilities beyond those of current and future serial electronic methods in low power, compact, rugged architectures. Coupled with expert consultancy and technical support, the technology may be used as the basis of a custom solution, or provide step increases in processing power to existing systems for OEM customers.
Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) microdisplays for use with display and non-display applications. The devices are supplied with a VGA drive board for simple set up as a primary or secondary PC monitor and can be applied to a variety of research applications.
The SLM is supplied in an enclosure that is compatible with the Thorlabs 30mm cage system, allowing the unit to be mounted to an optical bench or cage assembly.
