Paper Abstract

One of the well-known layouts of illumination systems for projection displays consists of an elliptical lamp reflector, an integrator and an optical relay. The presented analysis of the system is based on the paraxial properties of the relay and on the computer simulation of the source of light. This analysis allows system optimization, thus maximizing the geometrical collection efficiency for chosen lamp and for given etendue (target size and effective system F-number) of the optical system. Results of experimental tests are presented.
