Paper Abstract

Laser light can enable electronic displays with unique properties. Direct write laser display systems using point scanning or line scanning have been developed. Emerging, high information content, large screen displays based on small 2D liquid crystal on CMOS light valves and projection optics provide electronic images with unprecedented quality. This paper will describe the advantages that can be provided by laser illumination applied to display systems if significant technical and economic barriers can be overcome.
