21 May 2018 Optical design challenges from satellite imaging to augmented reality displays
Author Affiliations +
The design challenge of an optical system is not limited to the optical design itself and its performance in nominal conditions; it extends to the realisation of a system which includes tolerancing and manufacturability as well as meeting system requirements such power consumption, heat dissipation, mass, cost constraints and timescales. In this presentation, optical designs for different applications ranging from satellite optical imager to Augmented Reality Displays are presented to illustrate the different challenges that an optical design needs to address. Augmented Reality will prove to be a very useful tool in our everyday lives; it brings elements of the virtual world into the real world, enhancing what we see, hear, and feel. With this comes a high demand for compact, light, affordable and high-quality displays.
