HOLOEYE has launched a new enhanced electronics driver module for existing and forthcoming Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) panels. The PLUTO-2 features an HDMI interface for addressing phase functions, a USB connection for advanced calibrations, and a trigger sync output for synchronising with external devices – such as colour-switchable lasers. The driver’s faster addressing speed allows for a colour-field-sequential (CFS) mode at 180 Hz input frame rate with the matching new PLUTO-2 SLMs and, as a bonus, also offers a more stable phase response.
The PLUTO-2 driver is equipped with a dual-core processor and on-chip memory, enabling user-programmed (Ubuntu™) additional functionality. For example, a slideshow of images can played back from a USB stick or internal memory without the need for a PC.
HOLOEYE has also added to their newly developed dielectric mirror range of panels. These enable use with higher incident power lasers due to the SLM’s coating, which reduces absorption. The models currently available are:
- PLUTO-UV-043: 350 to 420 nm with 90% reflectivity and >2.3π; phase retardation up to 405 nm
- PLUTO-VIS-056: 450 to 650 nm with 93% reflectivity and 2.5π phase retardation at 530 nm, 2.1 at 633 nm
- PLUTO-NIR-049: 1000 to 1100 nm with 93% reflectivity and 2π phase retardation up to 1064 nm
