Abstract

A simple wide- view circular polarizer comprising of a linear polarizer and two biaxial films is proposed. Over the +/- 85 degrees viewing cone, the produced polarization is almost circular and the light leakage from the crossed circular polarizers is calculated to be less than 8.23 x 10(-)5, provided that the air-interface surface reflections are ignored. The design tolerance within +/- 5% of the optimal parameters is analyzed. (c) 2005 Optical Society of America.
