Description

Detailed Description of the Invention

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a housing for optical parts,
The present invention relates to an optical unit and a projector.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art Conventionally, as a projector, a light beam emitted from a light source is converted into RGB by a dichroic mirror.
The three color lights are separated, each color light is modulated by three liquid crystal panels according to the image data, and the modulated light beams are combined by the cross dichroic prism, and the color image is displayed on the screen through the projection lens. A so-called three-panel type for enlarging and projecting is known.

[0003]

However, in such a projector, for example, in a dichroic mirror arranged on the optical path, if the accuracy is varied or the position is deviated, the dichroic mirror is incident on the dichroic mirror. When the position of the illumination optical axis of the reflected light with respect to the illumination optical axis of the transmitted light deviates from the designed illumination optical axis position in the light flux separated into the reflected light reflected on the incident surface and the transmitted light transmitted through the incident surface. There is. In this case, the irradiation area in the liquid crystal panel installed for each color light is shifted, the effective irradiation area where each color light is effectively combined becomes small, and a part of the incident light is used for image projection. There was a problem that it was wasted. Therefore, it is necessary to adjust the direction (tilt) of an optical component such as a dichroic mirror in order to increase the effective irradiation area and effectively utilize the light flux.

Therefore, as a technique for adjusting the direction of the incident surface of the mirror, for example, Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2000-21436.
There are publications such as No. 3 publication. According to the technique of this publication, a mirror is arranged along the side surface of the housing via the elastic member, and the left and right end portions and the lower surface of the surface (light incident surface) of the mirror opposite to the elastic member. By providing the housing with pin-shaped cams that come into contact with the mirror at three points on the side end, and the elastic member expands and contracts in the direction in which the housing side surface and the mirror face each other according to the operation of these cams. The direction of the incident surface of the mirror can be adjusted independently in the biaxial rotation directions centering on the vertical axis and the horizontal axis passing through the substantially central portion of the mirror. However, in such a case, the cam directly urges the mirror, so that the mirror is apt to be distorted or damaged. There is also a problem that the adjustment position is likely to change.

An object of the present invention is to provide a housing for optical components, an optical unit, and a projector that can suppress the distortion of the mirror and independently adjust the direction of the incident surface of the mirror in the biaxial rotation direction. To do.

[0006]

An optical component casing according to the present invention accommodates a plurality of optical components including a mirror, and these plurality of optical components are provided with a predetermined illumination optical axis defined in a plane. An optical component housing arranged on the top, comprising a mirror holding member for holding the mirror, and a housing body for housing other optical components, the mirror holding member being a plane including the illumination optical axis. And a mirror holding frame for rotatably holding the mirror so that the angle formed by the incident surface of the mirror can be changed, and the mirror holding frame is provided on the mirror holding frame and biases the mirror in the rotational direction with respect to the mirror holding frame. A first biasing member and a second biasing member that biases the mirror holding frame in a rotation direction about a normal line of a plane including the illumination optical axis with respect to the optical component casing. Urging of the first urging member to the housing body A first adjusting member for adjusting a rotational position of the mirror by pressing the mirror from the side opposite to the direction,
A second adjusting member for pressing the mirror holding frame from the side opposite to the urging direction of the second urging member to adjust the rotational position of the mirror holding frame is provided.

Here, the predetermined illumination optical axis defined in a plane means, for example, a one-dot chain line in the figure when the optical component casing is viewed in a plane as shown in FIG. 1 described later. Z
Is the illumination optical axis. The angle formed by the plane including the illumination optical axis and the incident surface of the mirror is the tilt angle of the incident surface of the mirror with respect to the plane including the illumination optical axis, that is, the elevation angle. From the above, the rotation axis of the entrance surface of the mirror is an axis parallel to the plane including the illumination optical axis, for example, an axis parallel to the plane including the illumination optical axis and parallel to the entrance surface of the mirror (horizontal axis and Can be adopted.

The rotation direction about the normal line of the plane including the illumination light axis is the in-plane rotation direction in the plane including the illumination light axis. That is, the rotation axis of the mirror holding frame is the normal line of the plane including the illumination optical axis. At this time, by arranging the mirror to rotate following the rotation of the mirror holding frame, this normal line becomes the rotation axis (referred to as a vertical axis) of the mirror. From the above, the mirror is configured to be rotatable with the horizontal axis and the vertical axis, which are orthogonal to each other, as the rotation axes.

As the first urging member and the second urging member, various kinds of urging members such as leaf springs, coil springs, rubber and resin can be adopted. The mirror to be adjusted includes a general reflection mirror and a dichroic mirror that transmits a part of incident light.

According to such an invention, for example, the rotational position (direction) of the incident surface of the mirror is adjusted by the following procedure. (1) The mirror to be adjusted is held by the mirror holding frame of the mirror holding member while being rotatable about the horizontal axis described above. (2) Attach the first biasing member to the mirror holding frame. At this time, the first urging member is attached to the mirror holding frame so as to urge the mirror in the rotation direction about the horizontal axis. (3) Attach the second biasing member to the mirror holding frame. (4) The mirror holding member configured by attaching the first and second biasing members is rotatable in the in-plane rotation direction about the vertical axis as a rotation axis, and is positioned at a predetermined position of the housing body. To place. At this time, the second biasing member is arranged so as to bias the mirror holding frame in the in-plane rotation direction described above with respect to the optical component casing.

(5) The first adjusting member is arranged on the housing body.
At this time, the first adjusting member is arranged so as to press the mirror from the side opposite to the urging direction of the first urging member. Therefore,
Since the first biasing member expands and contracts by the pressing of the mirror by the first adjusting member, it is possible to adjust the rotational position of the mirror about the horizontal axis, that is, the elevation angle of the incident surface of the mirror. (6) The second adjusting member is arranged on the housing body. At this time, the second
The adjusting member is arranged so as to press the mirror holding frame from the side opposite to the urging direction of the second urging member. Therefore, since the second biasing member expands and contracts by the pressing of the mirror holding frame by the second adjusting member, it is possible to adjust the rotational position of the mirror holding frame in the in-plane rotation direction described above. At this time, the position of the entrance surface of the mirror in the in-plane rotation direction can be adjusted by rotating the mirror following the rotation of the mirror holding frame.

In order to perform the adjustment in the above-described procedure, the incident surface of the mirror is independently adjusted from the outside of the housing body with two axes (the above-mentioned horizontal axis and the vertical axis) orthogonal to each other as rotation centers. it can. Further, the second adjusting member urges the mirror holding frame of the mirror holding member,
Since the direction of the incident surface of the mirror is adjusted, it is possible to effectively prevent the damage or distortion of the mirror surface as compared with the case where the mirror surface is directly biased.

In the optical component casing as described above, it is preferable that the first adjusting member and the second adjusting member are attached to the casing body by a screw structure. With such a screwing structure, since the screwing condition can be slightly changed, it is possible to finely adjust the degree of biasing by each adjusting portion,
The direction of the incident surface of the mirror can be adjusted more accurately, and the adjusted position can be stably held.

In the optical component casing as described above, the mirror is provided with an abutting portion attached to the mirror in correspondence with the biasing position of the first biasing member and contacting the first biasing member. Is preferred. With such a configuration, the first
The biasing member does not directly bias the mirror, but biases the contact portion attached to the mirror to indirectly bias the mirror. For this reason, it is possible to more effectively prevent the occurrence of damage or distortion of the mirror surface.

Further, it is preferable that a rotation axis about which the mirror rotates with respect to the mirror holding frame is set within a plane including an entrance surface of the mirror. Further, it is preferable that the rotation axis of the mirror holding frame is set within a plane including the incident surface of the mirror. In such cases,
Since each rotation axis is set on the incident surface of the mirror, the incident surface of the mirror can be always arranged in the designed optical path position, and the adjustment work becomes easy.

Further, it is preferable that the second urging member is constructed so as to transmit a reaction force to the housing body. With this configuration, the spatial position of the housing body, the second biasing member, and the mirror holding member can be fixed at a fixed position at all times.

Here, conventional Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2000-21436.
The technique disclosed in Japanese Patent No. 3 has a problem that the mirror is unstable because the mirror is not fixed in particular after adjusting the direction of the mirror. Therefore, even if the mirror is fixed to the housing by adhesion or the like, it is difficult to readjust the mirror direction this time. Therefore, it is preferable that the optical component casing as described above be provided with a fixing member for screwing and fixing the mirror holding frame to the casing body. In such a case, for example, by screwing and fixing the mirror holding frame to the housing body with a shaft-shaped member or the like, after adjusting the rotational position of the mirror holding frame and adjusting the direction of the incident surface of the mirror, The posture of the mirror after adjustment can be reliably maintained without the need for adhesive fixing with an adhesive or the like. At this time, since it is fixed by screwing instead of adhesive fixing,
The direction of the entrance surface of the mirror can be easily readjusted.

An optical unit according to the present invention is characterized by including the optical component casing as described above and the mirror. According to such an invention, it is possible to achieve the same actions and effects as those of the optical component casing described above, and it becomes possible to project an optical image of high brightness and high quality.

In such an optical unit, it is preferable that the mirror is a dichroic mirror that transmits a part of incident light. With such a configuration, each member such as the first adjusting member, the second adjusting member, the first elastic member, and the second elastic member can be arranged so as not to be located on the main part of the exit surface of the mirror, and the incident light It is also suitable for a dichroic mirror that transmits a part.

A projector according to the present invention is characterized by being provided with the optical component casing or the optical unit. According to such an invention, it is possible to achieve the same actions and effects as those of the optical component casing and the optical unit described above, and it is possible to project a high-luminance and high-quality image.

Also, the light source lamp 4
As 11, a halogen lamp, a metal halide lamp, and a high-pressure mercury lamp are frequently used. Furthermore, the ellipsoidal mirror 4

The first lens array 418 has a structure in which small lenses having a substantially rectangular contour when viewed in the optical axis direction are arranged in a matrix. Each small lens has a light source lamp 4
The light flux emitted from 11 is divided into a plurality of partial light fluxes.
The contour shape of each small lens is set to be substantially similar to the shape of the image forming area of the liquid crystal panel 441.
For example, if the aspect ratio (ratio of horizontal and vertical dimensions) of the image forming area of the liquid crystal panel 441 is 4: 3, the aspect ratio of each small lens is also set to 4: 3.

The second lens array 414 has substantially the same structure as the first lens array 418, and has a structure in which small lenses are arranged in a matrix. The second lens array 414 has a function of forming an image of each small lens of the first lens array 418 on the liquid crystal panel 441 together with the superimposing lens 416.

In the projector 1 (electro-optical device 44) using the liquid crystal panel 441 that modulates polarized light, since only one type of polarized light can be used, almost all of the light from the light source lamp 411 that emits other types of randomly polarized light is used. Half are not used.
Therefore, by using the polarization conversion element 415, all the light emitted from the light source lamp 411 is converted into one type of polarized light, and the light utilization efficiency in the electro-optical device 44 is improved.

The blue light component transmitted by the dichroic mirror 421 is reflected by the reflection mirror 423, passes through the field lens 417, and reaches the blue liquid crystal panel 441B. The field lens 417 converts each partial light flux emitted from the second lens array 414 into a light flux parallel to the central axis (chief ray) thereof. Other liquid crystal panel 4
The same applies to the field lens 417 provided on the light incident side of 41R and 441G.

Of the red light and the green light reflected by the dichroic mirror 421, the green light is reflected by the dichroic mirror 422 and passes through the field lens 417 to reach the liquid crystal panel 441G for green. On the other hand, the red light passes through the dichroic mirror 422, passes through the relay optical system 43, further passes through the field lens 417, and reaches the liquid crystal panel 441R for red light. The relay optical system 43 is used for red light because the optical path length of the red light is longer than the optical path lengths of the other color lights, so that the reduction of the light use efficiency due to the diffusion of the light or the like is prevented. This is because. That is, the partial light flux that has entered the incident side lens 431 is directly transmitted to the field lens 417.

The electro-optical device 44 is provided with three liquid crystal panels 441R, 441G and 441B as light modulators, and uses, for example, a polysilicon TFT as a switching element and is separated by the color separation optical system 42.

(10) Since the second leaf spring 68 is configured to transmit the reaction force to the light guide body 2, the spatial positions of the light guide body 2, the second leaf spring 68, and the mirror holding frame 61 relative to each other. Can always be fixed in a fixed position.

(11) Since the second leaf spring 68 is attached to the side of the frame body 62, the second leaf spring 68 has a dichroic mirror compared to the case where the second leaf spring 68 is attached to the wall surface 21X of the lower light guide 21. Since it is not necessary to carefully attach the second leaf spring 68 to the wall surface 21X or the like of the lower light guide 21 so as not to contact the 421, the second leaf spring 6
8 can be installed easily and properly.

(12) Attach the projection 66 having a spherical tip to the frame main body 62.
Since two are formed on the
Of the dichroic mirror 421 and the incident surface 42 of the dichroic mirror 421
1A and 2A contact at two points. Therefore, the dichroic mirror 421 can rotate in the direction of arrow C.

(13) Since the leaf springs 67 to 69 are arranged so as not to be in the central portion of the exit surface 421B of the dichroic mirror 421, they are also suitable for the dichroic mirror 421 that transmits a part of the incident light. The target of adjustment can be expanded.

(14) The first leaf spring 67 is attached to the frame body 62 after the dichroic mirror 421 is housed in the frame body 62.
