Liquid Crystal Polarization Grating (LCPG) Technology
Non-mechanically reconfigurable optics with vastly superior size, weight, and power requirements compared to their mechanical counterparts.
LCPGs for Non-Mechanical Beam Steering and Switchable Optics
Liquid crystal polarization gratings (LCPGs) are diffractive elements that provide near-100% diffraction for circularly polarized light. When layered with thin polarization-controlling liquid crystal elements, LCPGs provide a means of non-mechanically reconfiguring light into different states, such as for beam steering or focusing.
Customers benefit from the patent on the pioneering work with LCPGs in non-mechanical beam steering (US 8,982,313 B2) as well as other related patents.
