Abstract

We present a full polarimetric characterization of a liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) display, with time resolution measurements below the frame period of the device. This time-resolved analysis shows evidence of temporal fluctuations in the millisecond range in the state of polarization of the beam reflected by the display. We demonstrate that light reflected by the display is maintained fully polarized, but these temporal fluctuations result in an effective depolarization effect when detectors with long time integration intervals are used in the characterization of the display.
