Paper Abstract

Dimension Technologies Inc. (DTI) has devised and experimentally tested a new photonics system which will allow the display of images on LCDs with resolutions greatly exceeding the pixel resolution of the LCD. The technique involves use of special lenses to successively image light from an array of sources into different subregions of pixels on a fast operating LCD, creating a high resolution image made up of the light points. The technique was successfully used to create 308 dpi images on an experimental 154 dpi ferroelectric LCD. Field sequential color illumination can be combined with this technique to create high resolution color images. Using this technique, it is possible to create very high resolution images without using a correspondingly large number of pixels on an LCD, thus avoiding manufacturing and yield problems associated with high resolution LCDs.
