An electrically tunable liquid-crystal-on-silicon (LCOS)-based pico projection system based on a liquid crystal lens adopting a liquid crystal and polymer composite film (LCPCF) is demonstrated. The LC lens consists of two built-in sub-lenses: one is an electrically tunable focusing lens controlled by a LC layer and the other is a fixed focused LCPCF lens. The electrically tunable focusing range of the pico projection system is 200 cm to ~ 7 cm when the voltage is from 0 to 35 Vrms. The image performance is also demonstrated. The related optical analysis is discussed. This study opens a new window for electrically tunable focusing pico projection system.
