LCOS backlight design

LCOS backlight design

LCOS backlight design


I currently switching from OLED to LCOS display in order to increase luminance but it seems that the backlight is not provided with the LCOS display.

I am looking for a LCOS backlight supplier (microdisplay) or tips in order to design one on ZEMAX.


RE: LCOS backlight design

You might try contacting the LCOS for a referral or looking in the Photonics Magazine Buyers Guide for a backlight supplier. Same goes for outsourcing the design if that is where you need to go. The Buyers Guide is available online I believe. Otherwise, Google is your friend.

The Zemax website has the users knowledge base available with several how-to articles. If you don't find what you are looking for you might start separate threads with specific Zemax questions instead of a single thread to cover an entire design.
