1 November 1991 Microlens array for modification of SLM devices
Author Affiliations +
Teledyne Brown Engineering (TBE) has designed a binary optic microlens array that will increase the efficiency of a spatial light modulator (SLM). This paper discusses the design procedure and predicts the simulated performance. It is demonstrated that conventional ray trace modeling is inadequate for micro-optic design due to diffraction effects. A scalar wave solution correctly simulates this phenomenon under most conditions.
