This industrial related research project concerns the collaboration between the Flemish company Barco (department Barco View) and the Department of Applied Physics and Photonics of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (H. Thienpont, C. Ruwisch, Y. Meuret and W. Meulebroeck). The contribution of the VUB is classified in two parts. In a first part the VUB will optically characterize a 5 Mega-Pixel LCD screen. More in particular we will spectroscopically investigate the behavior of both the cold cathode fluorescent lamps and the LCD material out of which the backlight is constructed. Also the measurement of the spectral response of different color diodes forms part of the project. In a second part we will design a special type of light-guide (with the use of optical simulation software) that is part of a sensor which continuously measures the quality of the screen. This sensor gives information to the electronic system that compensates the screens degradations. This project is funded by het Instituut voor de aanmoediging van Innovatie door Wetenschap en Technologie in Vlaanderen (IWT).
