Abstract

As shown in Figures 1 and 2, a large scale light valve 11 for electro-optic line printing may be formed by seating an electro-optic crystal 12 on or closely adjacent a plurality of individually addressable electrodes 135 - 13i which are deposited on, say, a printed circuit board 14. For example, a printed c k u i t stylus array, such as used in some electrographic stylus printers, may be employed to control the light valve 11.
