Optical design challenges in virtual and augmented reality
Advances in optical fabrication and measurement have enabled a new generation of aspheric and freeform optical surfaces that are making virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets possible. Freeform optical design software and virtual prototyping are accelerating the progress in bringing AR and VR headsets to market.
Learn how to:
Minimize stray light in AR headsets so that the user doesn’t experience eye fatigue
Optimize for crisp and undistorted projected and real-world images
Calculate system size, volume, and weight during system optimization of an optical design
Enable close coordination between optical and mechanical engineers during the design phase for faster innovation
