  • Patent number: 6864944
    Abstract: An electro-optic device such as a smectic liquid crystal cell 1 with an active semiconductor backplane 3 is mounted on a hybrid substrate 2, for example of alumina or silica. Other active or passive electronic or optical components may also be mounted on the substrate, and interconnected by conductive tracks, for example by wire bonding 17, and the substrate itself may be mounted on a printed circuit board. The substrate may comprise a heat sink. The arrangement facilitates the safe connection of the liquid crystal cell and good optical alignment thereof.

  • Publication number: 20040184287
    Abstract: The present invention relates, in one aspect to an image replication system comprising a light guide (2), a light source (8) arranged to direct emitted light into a first end (2a) of a light guide (2), a reflective spatial light modulator (6) and focussing means (16). In a preferred embodiment, the light guide (2) is in the form of an elongate glass rod having first and second parallel polygonal end faces (2a, 2b) which are parallel to the long axis of the rod, the rod having a uniform polygonal cross section along its length. The spatial light modulator (6) is optically coupled to the second end face (2b) of the light guide (2) and the focussing means (16) is arranged to receive light reflected back through the rod from the spatial light modulator (6), whereby to form multiple images of said spatial light modulator in an image plane (18).

  • Patent number: 6665108
    Abstract: A system for the production of a dynamic image for use in display applications includes a light source (16) which travels via a liquid crystal modulator (18) placed in the path of the light source (16). The output of the LC modulator (18) passes modulated light a lens ray (22) which itself guides light to an optically addressed spatial light modulator (24). The resulting real image from the optically addressed spatial light modulator (24) may be used in two dimensional and three dimensional displays. The addressing frame-rate of the liquid crystal modulator (18) is substantially greater than the frame-rate of the optically addressed spatial light modulator (24).

  • Patent number: 6437919
    Abstract: A system for the production of a dynamic image for use in holography includes a light source (16) which travels via a liquid crystal modulator (18) placed in the path of the light source (16). The output of the LC modulator (18) passes modulated light through a lens array (22) which itself guides light to an optically addressed spatial light modulator (24). The resulting real image from the optically addressed spatial light modulator (24) may be used in holography. The addressing frame-rate of the liquid crystal modulator (18) is substantially greater than the frame-rate of the optically addressed spatial light modulator (24).

  • Patent number: 4081559
    Abstract: A shaped heat-resistant chocolate product containing 15% to 35% by weight of at least one edible fat selected from (a) cocoa butter and (b) cocoa butter and at least one other fat, not less than 40% by weight sugar, and not more than 5% by weight of water, wherein said at least one edible fat is present as individual particles which are separated from one another in a sugar glass so that a discontinuous fat phase is present in the chocolate product. The product contains individual fat particles which are separated from one another in a sugar glass so that fat seepage from the product at elevated ambient temperatures is obviated.

  • Patent number: 4045583
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing an expanded temperature-resistant, chocolate product, comprises mixing intimately water, at least one edible fat, sugar and an emulsifier to produce an emulsion of said fat with an aqueous sugar solution. The solution is then evaporated to about 10% moisture content while maintaining the fat in emulsion. Finally, the mixture is dried, preferably under reduced pressure, with gasification to produce an expanded product containing 15-35% fat, at least 40% sugar and not more than 5%, preferably not more than 2%, water. The product contains individual fat particles which are separated from one another in a sugar glass so that fat seepage from the product at elevated ambient temperatures is obviated.
