|20140185130||Despeckling Red Laser Light - A method of despeckling light that includes mixing high-speckle far-red laser light with low-speckle green laser light in amounts selected to achieve a desired color point in a digital image. The far-red laser light may be red laser diodes with wavelengths in the range of 640 to 680 nm. The green laser light may include stimulated-Raman-scattering light from an optical fiber. The desired color point may be DCI red or Rec. 709 red.||07-03-2014|
|20140185016||Color-Based Stereoscopic Projection System and Method - A stereoscopic projection system and method of generating light that include two or three infrared lasers, two optical parametric oscillators, and six or seven second harmonic generators. Six colors of visible light are produced. Three bands of red, green, and blue form an image for the left eye of the viewer, while the other three bands of red, green, and blue form an image for the right eye of the viewer.||07-03-2014|
|20140177049||Low Etendue Illumination - An optical system and method that utilize multiple low-etendue lasers to illuminate multiple spots one or more spatial light modulators. Stereoscopic systems may be formed by using different wavelengths or different polarizations for each spot. Light from each spot is guided to each eye of the viewer by wearing 3D glasses.||06-26-2014|
|20140177036||Optical System with Optical Parametric Oscillator - An optical system and method that use a pump laser, an optical parametric oscillator, and two second harmonic generators to generate three colors of laser light. A recirculating optical sub-system includes a gain-guided optical parametric oscillator and one of the second harmonic generators and has four lenses that form two collimated optical beams between the optical parametric oscillator and the second harmonic generator.||06-26-2014|
|20140176912||Polarized Stereoscopic Projection System and Method - A stereoscopic display system and method of stereoscopic projection that include a polarization-switching light source and a polarization-preserving projector. The polarization state of the polarization-switching light source is synchronized with alternate projection of left-eye images and right-eye images. The polarization-switching light source may include a laser and a rotating disk, and the disk may include a waveplate that switches the polarization state as the disk rotates.||06-26-2014|
|20140111847||Despeckling Apparatus and Method - An apparatus and method that reduces laser speckle by using stimulated Raman scattering in an optical fiber. The fiber core diameter and length are selected to achieve a desired output color. An adjustable despeckler is formed by combining two optical fibers in parallel and adjusting the amount of light in each path.||04-24-2014|
|20130329755||Green and Red Despeckling - An apparatus and method for despeckling that includes a pulsed green laser, a green laser diode assembly, and stimulated Raman scattering light formed in an optical fiber. The stimulated Raman scattering light is divided into green light and red light. The green light from the stimulated Raman scattering is combined with the green laser diode assembly to form a green primary light. The red light from the stimulated Raman scattering light forms a red primary light. The green primary light and the red primary light are used to project a digital image.||12-12-2013|
|20130250401||Laser Projection System with Improved Bit Depth - An apparatus and method for despeckling that includes a green laser diode assembly, a pulsed laser with a repetition rate of less than 100 kHz, and stimulated Raman scattering light formed in an optical fiber. The laser diode light and stimulated Raman scattering light are combined to form a projected digital image. The green laser diode assembly or the pulsed laser is switched to improve the bit depth of the projected digital image.||09-26-2013|
|20130162952||Multiple Laser Projection System - A method and apparatus for despeckling that includes a green laser diode, a DPSS laser, and stimulated Raman scattering light formed in an optical fiber. The laser diode light and stimulated Raman scattering light are combined to form a projected digital image. The output of the optical fiber may be split into two spectrums. The projected digital image may be stereoscopic with one image formed from the laser diode light and one spectrum, and the other image formed from the other spectrum.||06-27-2013|

|20130044367||Microbend-Enhanced Despeckling - A method and apparatus that enhances an aspect of light output from an optical fiber by microbending the optical fiber to increase stimulated Raman scattering light. The enhancement may be a change in speckle characteristics or a change in color. There may be an optical monitor that varies the amount of microbending by controlling the force on the optical fiber.||02-21-2013|
