Paper Abstract

A projector with a height of 7 mm has been developed. The projector uses a two dimensional MEMS, a red and blue diode laser and a second harmonic green laser. This projector module is able to display images with a WVGA resolution while consuming 1.5 W. Due to the collimated nature of laser beams, the display has a depth of focus that is virtually unlimited. Future MEMS developments will lead to even thinner projection modules. Furthermore, this projection technology enables additional display systems such as head-up displays for vehicles.
