Paper Abstract

Aimed to pursue the development of infrared scene projection technology beyond the current state-of-the-art, we consider advantages of all-silicon bulk pixelless photonic projectors by light down conversion in comparison with thermal emitter micromachining devices available in the market. There are several reasons for this. First, there are firm evidences that the technology and performance of thermal emitters have already plateaued and future advances in the field do not seem assured. Second, we show that photonic devices by light down conversion evolved from scientific curiosity into technology poised to offer new capabilities to broadband projector applications. Finally, we demonstrate that silicon becomes enabling material for emitting structures operating in the short, mid, and long wave IR spectral bands.
