25 April 2008 Requirements on LEDs in etendue limited light engines
Author Affiliations +
Light engines used in projection systems often set constraints on the design and system application of the LED light source. In these advanced optical systems the optical extend of the LED light source is limited due the etendue of the imager. The etendue is defined as the product of emitting area and viewing angle. This paper shows how the LED light source is constrained by the laws of optics and how these limits influence the light source design. To achieve an efficient system design, the variables that must be optimized include the primary optics, LED package design and chip technology. The LED light sources which are best suited for these applications and requirements will also be demonstrated and discussed.
