Research Institution

Core optical components for deployable ultra high resolution displays will be developed in a program focusing on four main technologies: First is a light modulator that offers high resolution and optical efficiency and can be manufactured with extreme reliability. Second is a laser illumination system that is properly matched to the modulator for high brightness. Third are polarized optical elements for high contrast. Fourth is an optical system architecture that takes advantage of the high switching speeds possible with micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). The components developed in this program are the heart of an optics engine that delivers stunning visual performance for military flight simulation and civilian high performance display applications. Recent advances in laser illumination systems coupled with our new MEMS optical modulator designs will dramatically reduce the size and cost of high resolution projection displays. In addition to demonstrating component technologies, we are also developing metrology tools and methods to facilitate high reliability manufacturing.
