You won't, of course, be able to switch the LASER on and off that fast.
I assume you mean you are looking for a liquid-crystal shutter that can
be used to block/ transmit the beam?

What speed do you wish to communicate at?  What (approx.) will be the beam
intensity
to me modulated by the LCD shutter?  Just curious, what are you building?
