Abstract

See full text

Techniques for achieving high resolution, high-speed gray scale printing with binary spatial light modulators. A spatial light modulator array is divided into subarrays, and the subarrays are illuminated at various levels (510, 512, 514, 516) of a modulated light source. Additionally, each pixel (520) can be divided up into four phases and printed in phase pairs.
