Abstract : This report presents the results of a study examining the feasibility of micro-optic arrays to eliminate the seams between tiling modules making up a large flat panel display. The individual modules consist of commercially- available liquid crystal displays (LCD). We have found that tiling seams can be removed with micro-optic arrays but only by compromising other important display attributes, most notably display luminance and spectral bandwidth. The assumed module edge gap of 17.5 mim is the dominant parameter limiting performance, and this gap must be less than approx. 1-10 mm in order to have acceptable performance with existing backlights and LCD modules.
