High-Efficiency, Liquid-Crystal-Based, Controllable Diffraction Grating
Journal of the Optical Society of America A-Optics Image Science and Vision
We propose a new reflective liquid-crystal diffraction grating design attained by combining the use of a polymer wall to reduce the detrimental effect of the fringing electric field in a high-resolution grating and a quarterwave plate to make the device polarization independent. This design could offer significant performance advantages in a projection display system. Results of calculations are compared with experimental data. (c) 2005 Optical Society of America.
