Abstract

Simulating the positions of output beams under the assumption that a liquid-crystal display acts as a binary phase modulator reveals that the number of the outputs increases almost linearly with the square root of the number of pixels assigned to an input. This result is confirmed by experiments, and it is estimated that 1016 outputs can be obtained when the number of pixels is 700 × 700. Holographic switches with liquid-crystal displays are therefore suitable for large-scale switches.
