Bell and Howell: Analysis of Scintillation Phenomena in Rear Screen Projectors

Stavros Busenberg

This project developed a mathematical model of the highly undesirable phenomenon of scintillation which occurs on rear projection screens. Scintillations could not be eliminated experimentally, and the client desired an understanding of its basic nature and of the parameters governing its behavior. A computer program based on this model was developed and used to assess the effect of various pertinent parameters on the scintillation phenomenon.
