We have designed a compact light engine for a ferroelectric Liquid-crystal-on-Silicon (FLCOS) microdisplay used in a polarized head mounted projection display (p-HMPD). In the light engine, the polarization of the light is manipulated in order to achieve a compact structure and a mirror based tapered light pipe is designed to improve the light efficiency and image uniformity. The performance of the light engine is analyzed based on the simulation results using LightTools.
