The patent application (Publication Number: US20240036322A1) describes an optical display system that includes an image generating unit producing image light with a narrow angular luminance distribution. This system incorporates an optical lens system with an exit pupil to direct the image light to the viewer's eye. The image generating unit consists of an image generating component generating polarized light and a polarization-dependent light deflection component that increases the amount of polarized light entering the exit pupil, resulting in the narrow angular luminance distribution of the deflected light.

Furthermore, the patent application details the use of a Pancharatnam-Berry phase optical element made of liquid crystal polymer as the polarization-dependent light deflection component. The orientation of the liquid crystal polymer is symmetric with respect to the optical axis of the optical lens system, allowing for control over the angular luminance distribution. The system also includes variations in the angular luminance distribution across different locations of the image generating unit to optimize light transmission through the optical lens system. Additionally, the patent application mentions the application of this optical display system in near-eye display modules and electronic devices, highlighting its potential for various technological implementations.
