Richard Dennis Rallison, C Gregory Amadon, Wolfgang Adam Mack Jr, Arlie R Conner: Head-mounted display with image generator, fold mirror and mirror for transmission to the eye position of the user. i O Display Systems, Sheridan Ross P C, September 7, 1999: US05949583 (173 worldwide citation)

A visual display device is provided for delivering a generated image, preferably combinable with environment light, to the eye of a user. Light from an image generator such as a CRT, LED or LCD is reflected from a fold mirror away from a user's eye towards a combiner. The image is reflected from the ...

Arlie R Conner: Polarized, multicolor LED-based illumination source. 3M Innovative Properties Company, June 2, 2009: US07540616 (139 worldwide citation)

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) emit light at a first wavelength. A phosphor material close to LEDs converts at least some of the light to a second wavelength. The light at both wavelengths passes through a light collecting unit. A reflecting polarizer transmits both wavelengths in a first polarization ...

Arlie R Conner, Paul E Gulick: Color display system. In Focus Systems, Klarquist Sparkman Campbell Leigh & Whinston, April 17, 1990: US04917465 (137 worldwide citation)

A preferred display system is formed by stacking three STN birefringent LCD panels that are tuned to different subtractive primary colors (i.e. yellow, cyan and magenta). Interposed between the panels, and sandwiched about the stack, are polarizers. At least some of the polarizers may be colored to ...

Arlie R Conner: Hybrid color display system. In Focus Systems, Townsend & Townsend, October 30, 1990: US04966441 (132 worldwide citation)

A color display system includes two colored LCD panels operated in conjunction with a colored filter. One of the LCDs may be a primary color, such as red, green or blue, and the other LCD may be its complement, i.e. cyan, magenta or yellow, respectively. The color filter may be in mosaic form and de ...
