Paper Abstract

This paper describes the STAR architecture that is being developed at Physical Optics Corporation for military and commercial use. Because the STAR architecture is based on non- imaging optics, lightpipes, and diffusers, these component technologies are described in detail. Major emphasis in this paper is on the light shaping diffuser, which functions as a non-Lambertian controlled scatterer. This diffuser is becoming a critical element of a number of military and commercial displays, and therefore we have taken the liberty to describe it in detail so that scientists and engineers can optimize their current displays in terms of brightness, uniformity, homogeneity, compactness, and ease of operation.
