Abstract

Disclosed above is a modified gamma Ruticon type imaging member which includes a fiber optics element 20, a layer of transparent fluid 22 (optional) and spatial light modulating layer 24, In operation of this device, an optical image is projected through the base of the member and focused on the interface of the fiber optic element and the layer of fluid, The light conducting optical fibers 21 transmit the image pattern and the coincident spatial light modulating pattern onto photoconductive layer 18, thereby resulting in the creation of a diffraction pattern in layer 12 corresponding to the deformations in layer 16, The princ'ipal advantage in the use of a structure of the construction described above resides in the non~permanent nature of the association of the spatial light modulating element with the balance of the imaging member. Thus, when the balance of the imaging member becomes exhausted or damaged, the spatial light modulating element can be removed and reused, This feature represents a major economy, since the spatial light modu- lating element is generally quite expensive,

Disclosed above is a modified gamma Ruticon type imaging
member which includes a fiber optics element 20, a layer of
transparent fluid 22 (optional) and spatial light modulating
layer 24,

In operation of this device, an optical image is projected
through the base of the member and focused on the interface
of the fiber optic element and the layer of fluid, The
light conducting optical fibers 21 transmit the image
pattern and the coincident spatial light modulating pattern
onto photoconductive layer 18, thereby resulting in the
creation of a diffraction pattern in layer 12 corresponding
to the deformations in layer 16, The princ'ipal advantage
in the use of a structure of the construction described
above resides in the non~permanent nature of the association
of the spatial light modulating element with the balance of
the imaging member. Thus, when the balance of the imaging
member becomes exhausted or damaged, the spatial light
modulating element can be removed and reused, This feature
represents a major economy, since the spatial light modu-
lating element is generally quite expensive,
