Abstract: To provide an electro-optical device, an electronic apparatus using the electro-optical device, a method for manufacturing an electro-optical device, in which high-quality image display can be realized by avoiding abnormal exposures during formation of a photosensitive resin layer on a transparent substrate by using photolithography. A TFT-arrayed substrate 10 of a reflective or transflective electro-optical device 100 is manufactured in such a manner that a photosensitive resin 13 is exposed from the front face side of the TFT-arrayed substrate after the photosensitive rein 13 is applied, while the TFT-arrayed substrate is held at the rear face side thereof by a vacuum chuck 500. In this case, since a light-shielding film 1g is formed at the lower side of a photosensitive resin layer 12, a risk in that light transmitted through the TFT-arrayed substrate 10 is reflected by the vacuum chuck 500 and thereby transfers marks and the like of suction holes 501 to the photosensitive resin 13 can be avoided.

Abstract: A laser beam delivery system for supplying a laser beam to a computer generated hologram which shapes and divides the supplied laser beam into a plurality of pseudo flat top laser beams. The plurality of pseudo flat top laser beams are then passed through collimated optics which alter the beams so that the beams are conveyed along the optical axis in a parallel manner. The plurality of collimated laser beams then passes through a converging mechanism which facilitates converging of the plurality of separated collimated laser beams through a clear aperture of a mirror of a first repeat positioning device so that all of the light is received by the repeat positioning device and appropriately reflected thereby to a second mirror of a second repeat positioning device and then to a rear surface of an F-Theta lens. The F-Theta lens focuses the plurality of separated collimated laser beams at the object to be processed. The converging mechanism facilitates converging of all of the supplied light so that substantially all of the supplied light passes through the clear aperture(s) of the repeat positioning device(s).

Abstract: An optical resonator is designed to suppress higher order transverse spatial modes. Higher order transverse modes in the inventive optical resonator are forced to be unstable, and ultimately achieving single transverse mode resonator operation. Specifically, the mirror shape or intracavity lens profile is tailored to bound the lower order modes while rendering the higher order modes unstable. This has application in MEMS/MOEMS devices by reducing side mode suppression ratio (SMSR) dependence on alignment tolerances, for example.
