This paper covers recent theoretical and experimental work in the area of multiple quantum well modulators with particular emphasis on optical processing applications. The paper covers the analysis of MQW as a modulator element as well as one- and two-dimensional spatial light modulator structures, both optically and electrically addressed. Recent experimental efforts in developing MQW modulators structures are surveyed. Finally, future development such as quantum dots as well as the relative role of MQW within the family of spatial light modulators is discussed.
