VividQ uses Zemax to simplify computer-generated holography for AR

Based in London and Cambridge, England, VividQ specializes in computer-generated holography (CGH) software and consulting to help companies produce high-quality devices that integrate digital content into the visual world. Used together with a spatial light modulator (SLM) and a light source (usually a laser), VividQ technology applies three-dimensional data from sources like gaming engines, 3D cameras, and computer-aided drafting (CAD) software to manipulate the diffraction and interference properties of light, resulting in a dynamic, interactive holographic experience.

Read the full story to find out the three key areas where VividQ used OpticStudio to achieve precision in miniaturizing its optical design without sacrificing performance.
