IVAM Focus Group Photonics

Augmented and Virtual Reality

Discuss with other IVAM members the current trends and developments in the field of Augmented and Virtual Reality.  

The next digital meeting of the IVAM Photonics Focus Group will take place on Tuesday November 28, 2023 from 08:00 a.m. to 09:30 a.m. (CET).  

In the first part, Dr. Douwe Geuzebroek from Brilliance RGB will present how photonic IC technology will support the development of future AR glasses. How can AR glasses be manufactured with the required performance and in the targeted number of units? What is the role of photonic IC technology and how can it be used most efficiently?

Afterwards, Dr. Tomas Sluka from Creal will present their specially developed retinal light field display. What is its advantages compared to other 3D displays? How can these realize the most natural and harmless AR/VR experience possible? Where can they be applied and where do these displays reach an application limit?

What are the benefits of these systems, where can they be used, and what are the challenges of using them?

These and further questions will be discussed at the next Photonics Focus Group meeting. This will provide a basis for discussion on opportunities and trend directions for photonics companies. In addition to the talks, the discussion round will provide the opportunity for networking and the exchange of knowledge and experience.

In the second part of the meeting, further activities of the Focus Group will be coordinated.
