Standard Products

The BNS signature product family consists of a complete line of liquid crystal on silicon, reflective spatial light modulators (SLMs). With both XY and linear formats now available as standard, BNS addresses most active development areas. SLMs have an expanding role in several optical areas where light control on a pixel-by-pixel basis is critical for optimum system performance. Learn more >
