Polarization Engineering for LCD Projection, Hardback Book

Polarization Engineering for LCD Projection Hardback

Part of the Wiley Series in Display Technology series


Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) projection technology has, in recent years, led the way in large area displays because of its potential to deliver scalable, high resolution images at a low cost.

Since large displayed images demand high brightness and contrast, a full understanding of polarization, and how to manage its effects, is essential for the development of quality systems.

Using the example of LCD projection technology, this practical text provides a thorough coverage of polarization engineering problems, with appropriate solutions and mathematical tools for analysis.

Key features include: a comprehensive introduction to the basics of polarization, LCDs, projection technologies and LCD projection system engineering; a detailed examination of optical system components, including polarizers and retarder stack filters; a full treatment of system contrast and color management issues; and, in depth analyses of how to manage polarization in the major LCD projection systems.

Display engineers, scientists and technicians active in this field will find this a valuable resource, as will developers of large screen projection displays and microdisplays. It is also useful for graduate students and researchers as an accessible introduction to the technology.
