Paper Abstract

We show an electro optic linear polarizer for the visible spectrum region. The device is made of a CyberdisplayTM liquid crystal display (LCD) manufactured by Kopin Co. and a linear polarizer. The device can rotate from 0 to 70 degrees the linear polarization state of a beam. To control the polarization rotation, we displayed gray levels from 0 to 255 in a PC connected to the LCD. We present the complete characterization of our device and experimental results.
