Abstract

We propose to use a linear cylindrical taper as an optical line illuminator for various light-emitting-diode-based emerging scanning and display applications. A simple model to explain the mechanism of this line illuminator is presented. Experimental verifications are performed, and main performance characteristics are discussed.
