Abstract
A new x-cube prism with small polarizing dichroic filters was made for an optical projection system. The x-cube prism was used to combine the three primary colors, which were divided by the preset dichroic mirrors. A coating was designed and fabricated such that s- and p-polarized light was shifted to be obliquely incident in the x-cube prism: the shift was the same as that at the dividing dichroic mirrors. Hence, energy loss was lower than that associated with the conventional x-cube prism, and the brightness of the projection system was 33.2% higher and the color temperature was 18.2% higher than those of the conventional x-cube prism.
