Abstract

We present the eigenpolarization states of a commercially available liquid-crystal television display and show that phase-only modulation can be achieved over a large dynamic range of video voltages for several bias voltage settings if the eigenpolarization states are used. A set of operating curves using these polarization states is given for the device.
