In this work we investigate design parameters of a stereoscopic head-worn augmented reality display that would facilitate a wider uptake of technology by enterprise and professional users. The emphasis is put on mimicking a way of how naturally the ambient world is perceived by human visual system. To solve this, we propose a solid-state multi-focal display architecture, which is tailored for near-work oriented tasks. The core of the proposed technology is a solid-state multi-plane volumetric screen, with four physical image depth planes which form the secondary image source. The volumetric screen utilizes electrically controllable liquid-crystal based diffuser elements, which receive the image information from the primary source – a pico projection unit. The volumetric screen is coupled with a bird-bath type optical image combiner/eyepiece to yield a 40-degree horizontal field of view covering a representable depth space of 0.35m to infinity where no effects of vergence-accommodation conflict are experienced.
