CPDS researchers developed new nausea-free AR head-mounted display

last modified Dec 18, 2019 03:10 PM

CPDS researchers have developed a new augmented reality (AR) head-mounted display (HMD) in collaboration with Huawei European Research Centre, in Munich. The HMD delivers a realistic and comfortable 3D viewing experience, without the commonly associated side effects of nausea or eyestrain. It can deliver high-quality clear image directly on the retina, even if the user is wearing glasses.

Their excellent work has been reported by University of Cambridge, which can be found in the following link:

This research results have been reported in the journal Research. To find more details of the published paper, please see: Pawan K. Shrestha, Matt J. Pryn, Jia Jia, et al. ‘Accommodation-Free Head Mounted Display with Comfortable 3D Perception and an Enlarged Eye-box.’ Research (2019).

Introduction of CPDS

Centre for Photonic Devices and Sensors (CPDS) is in the Photonics area of the Electrical Engineering Division, with a research focus embracing photonic and sensing devices, functional materials and their integration at system level.

We aim to address future societal needs with new system functionalities through invention of novel device architectures based on in-depth understanding of basic material properties.

There is a wide range of activities within the group, including phase-only holography and its applications, high brightness multi-stable colour reflective displays, tuneable dielectric materials and devices for radio frequencies, liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) device development, and novel sensors.

As well as conducting highly focused studies, we also specialise in the development of demonstrators for business exploitation and commercialisation. This is facilitated by multi-disciplinary expertise within the group and by our highly experienced team approach. Some of the outcomes from the group have been successfully transferred to our industrial collaborators for production.
