10 May 2012 Liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) devices and their application to scene projection

Liquid Crystal on Silicon micro-displays are the enabling components on a variety of commercial consumer products including high-definition projection televisions, office projectors, camera view-finders, head-mounted displays and picoprojectors. The use and potential application of LCOS technology in calibrated scene projectors is just beginning to be explored. Calibrated LCOS displays and projectors have been built and demonstrated not only in the visible regime, but also in the SWIR, MWIR and LWIR. However, LCOS devices are not only capable of modulating the intensity of a broadband illumination source, but can also manipulate the polarization and/or phase of a laser source. This opens the possibility of both calibrated polarization displays and holographic projection displays.
