Optically addressed spatial light modulators (OASLMs) based on deformed helix ferroelectric liquid crystals (DHFLC) with high tilt angles on order of 40° and helical pitches less than 0.2μm were developed. The diffraction efficiency reached the order of 20%. The light induced deviation of the optical axis of the DHFLC layer was measured in sandwich structures consisting of photoconductors and liquid crystals. The photoelectric parameters of photoconductive amorphous silicon carbide a-SiC:H and a photoconductive polymeric films were measured with and without light blocking and reflecting layers. The application of the developed OASLMs in a holographic image corrector was demonstrated.
