Paper Abstract

We report progress to develop a miniature reflective display with a silicon backplane that can be used to project full color video images. This display has sufficient speed for sequential color at full video rates. It can tolerate the high light flux levels required for projecting bright images. The display has more than 640 X 480 pixels on a 20 micron pitch. Each pixel is an 18 micron square mirror. The mirror surface can be either overcoated aluminum or a high efficiency dielectric mirror.
