Simulation of Multilayer Birefringent Reflective Polarizer with VirtualLab Fusion

Multilayer birefringent reflective polarizers have big advantages in liquid crystal display (LCD) applications. They can recycle the backlight so as to improve the optical efficiency of LCDs. In this use case, we reproduce the experiments in Li et. al. J. Display Technol. 5, 335-340 (2009) to explore the relationship between the number of alternate birefringent layers and the Bragg reflection condition in VirtualLab Fusion. Then the variation of the reflectance efficiency with different wavelengths and incident angles is further investigated.
