This article presents a methodology on the analysis of the thermal effects in the ColorQuad™ for the image quality. ColorQuad is one of the most promising optical components in the projection display system. Various types of thermal effects might occur in optical system. ITRI/OES is developing a study methodology that combines different kinds of commercial software (ASAP™, FlowTherm and ANSYS). The ability to simulate the multi-physics phenomena is important to the analysis of the image quality for various optical components. This simulation indicates that the cooling system will cause depolarization of the light in the first PBS, which will degrade the contrast ratio of the system.
