Paper Abstract

An achromatic linear polarization switch (ALPSTM)is discussed that enables stereoscopic 3D projection systems using conventional linear polarizing eyewear. The ALPS resides at the output of the projection lens and functions as a switchable polarizer. Features include rapid switching, high contrast, and a color-balanced on-state. The ALPS forms a flexible platform for switching between any set of orthogonal polarizations or filter states.
