Abstract

Speckle and the compound speckle can be reduced by angle diversity. In laser projection displays, simple, low cost and efficient speckle reduction techniques require smart optical design. Using a MEMS scanner together with a condenser lens, laser beams with different illumination angles are obtained on the diffuser surface with low speckle contrast ratio (CR). After homogenizing within a rod integrator, the speckle field illuminates a display panel, and is projected onto the screen which forms the compound speckle. Characterization method to evaluate the compound speckle reduction efficiency is analyzed and discussed in a simplified optical system. The preliminary speckle reduction is demonstrated in a commercial projector where a 600 mW green laser has been used as the illumination source, and the compound speckle CR is brought down from 0.38 to 0.14.
