Paper Abstract

Laser speckle degrades image quality in laser displays. The speckle contrast needs to be correctly evaluated in designing laser displays. In this paper, a moving small diffuser for speckle reduction is set up for laser projection display system. We demonstrate the effect of the projection lens on speckle contrast under the scenarios of free-space and image geometry measurement with different configurations. The results show the speckle contrast in free-space geometry is measured as about 74.16% without projection lens and 60.74% with projection lens for the static diffuser, which are reduced to 2.75% when the diffuser moves for both with and without projection lens. In the imaging geometry, the moving diffuser reduces the speckle contrast from 83.22% to 9.61% without projection lens, and from 98.7% to 36.59% with projection lens.
