Paper Abstract

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) have recently gained much interest as projection light sources. In this work, a compound parabolic concentrator (CPC) coupled to a biologically inspired compound-eye array is designed and fabricated as a light collection engine of a pico-projector. The results indicate that more than 90% light emitted by a monolithic LED array can be collected by the CPC coupled to a compound-eye array and transmitted within the designed angle. This method is advantageous in many respects compared with those available, such as compact volume, high collection efficiency, rectangular radiation pattern and controllable output divergence angle. The result validates that the system reaches a collection efficiency of 87% of micro-LED emitted light. Moreover, the beam collimation quality has been analyzed obtaining a residual divergence of less than 2º. Thus, the results achieved by the proposed optical system improve those obtained with several commercially available devices.
