Using GLV, displays of the future may cost much less, require less space, and make highresolution images possible in handheld personal communication devices. The grating light valve (GLV) is a" micro projection" technology which operates using a dynamically adjustable diffraction grating.
It competes with other light valve technologies such as Digital Light Processing (DLP) and liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) for implementation in video projector devices such as rearprojection televisions. The grating light valve (GLV) technology is a micromechanical phase grating.
By providing controlled diffraction of incident light, a GLV device will produce bright or dark pixels in a display system.

APTE Report No. 5192 A DISSERTATION The Grating Light Valve (hereafter GLV) is a micromechanical light valve intended for as well as for simplifying the design ofdrivers (fast pixels can be addressed by a passive The Grating Light Valve TM (GLV tm) spatial light modulator is a unique and proven CMOS processcompatible optical MEMS device.
The modulator employs a dynamically adjustable diffraction grating to manipulate an optical signal. Grating light valve is a result of the technological evolution of structures (MOEMS) that are responsible for the combination of mechanical, electrical and optical components on a microscopic level. The Grating Light Valve: revolutionizing display technology By: D. M.
Bloom, Silicon Light Machines (formerly Echelle, Inc. ) ABSTRACT The Grating Light Valve (GLV) technology is a micromechanical phase grating.
Other linear light valves, such as the grating light valve [1, 3, 6 and the flexible micromirror array [4 are not well suited for this approach. Figure 7 shows our initial design for a trilinear
