This paper presents a description and design considerations for silicon/PLZT Spatial Light Modulators (Si/PLZT SLMs) which provide high parallel processing power, dynamic range, cellular resolution, sensitivity and the potential for implementation of "smart" optical devices. Following an overview of Si/PLZT SLMs, we discuss two current technologies related to the development of these devices to meet the highest performance goals. Finally, we predict performance in specific applications.
