  • Patent number: 10928611
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a lens module for a projector of laser scanning type which is focus-free and has a short throw distance. In one example, a lens module includes a first optical member including a free-curved lens that passes a beam light reflected by a minute vibrating mirror; and a second optical member including a free-curved mirror to reflect the beam light which has passed through the first optical member, or a free-curved lens to pass the beam light which has passed through the first optical member. The beam light, which has been reflected by or has passed through the second optical member, has at the same position beam waists in horizontal and vertical directions perpendicular to a propagating direction of the beam light and also has beam radii coinciding in the horizontal and vertical directions.

  • Publication number: 20200174349
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a projection optical system and an image projection device capable of projecting a more uniform and brighter image. The image projection device includes a laser light source for outputting a laser beam, a scanning unit for performing scanning with the laser beam two-dimensionally, and an optical component for enlarging a projection angle of view of an image projected by performing the scanning at a predetermined magnification relative to a scanning angle of view of the scanning performed by the scanning unit. The optical component is designed so that a ratio of the magnification for enlargement to change the scanning angle of view into the projection angle of view at an edge part of an image to the magnification for enlargement of view at a central part of the image is greater than 1. The present technique is applicable to laser scanning type image projection devices, for example.
