How to work around the limitations of low-cost, compact imaging

How to work around the limitations of low-cost, compact imaging

As there is increasing pressure for optical engineers to create compact imaging to fit within thinner and lighter housing for applications such as AR/VR headsets, heads up displays, lidar systems, medical imaging, and more, there is also the demand to make those systems manufacturable at a lower cost. But there are certain limitations associated with this low-cost, compact imaging.

Holographic optical elements for alternate reality and other systems

Holographic optical elements for alternate reality and other systems

A holographic optical element is a thin sheet of photosensitive material produced using holographic imaging processes that can mimic the functions of an optical component. Common uses for holographic optical elements include laser diodes, lidar, heads-up displays, smart glasses, AR/VR headsets, and other technological innovations requiring thinner and lighter optical designs.

Non-circular optics for lidar and other cutting-edge technologies

Non-circular optics for lidar and other cutting-edge technologies

As innovative technology companies strive to make smaller and lighter optical devices, there is a growing trend in incorporating non-circular components into the designs. The use of such components can address volume constraints raised by design requirements for tighter packaging, as well as improve the thermomechanical stability of designs exposed to variable operational and environmental loads.
