Paper Abstract

Physical Optics Corporation (POC) has developed novel high- gain holographic non-Lambertian (HNL) screens for high- resolution flat panel displays, cockpit displays, and other military and commercial screen applications. These HNLs are composite holographic components that combine both diffusive and diffractive functions in a single element. These screens can control light energy distribution within a desired elliptical or circular cone and direction. As a result, the contrast and luminance of screens can be increased 10 times without any degradation in resolution. POCs HNL screens do not introduce any of the interference 'Moire' fringing that hinders the performance of lenticular screens. Additionally, the graded index properties of HNL screens eliminate all back-scattering losses, which in current scatterers are as high as 50 percent.
