Abstract
Rapid advances in processing of information have placed ever increasing demands on the display systems which transfer critical information to the decision makers in military and commercial settings. One serious limitation has been in the quality of head mounted display (HMD) systems meeting the demands of high frame rates and high resolution with compact, cost effective, and efficient optical sources. Laser Power Corporation (LPC) proposes to develop a HMD concept which is based upon highly efficient three color microlasers. Recent developments at LPC on other government and industrially funded R&D contracts and internal R&D now promise highly attractive performance characteristics for microlaser devices either as individual three color sources or in the form of linear arrays.
