A Comparison of Substrate-Guided and Free Space Augmented Reality Optical Architectures for Automotive Head-Up Displays (HUDs)

Heads up display (HUD) and helmet mounted display (HMD) technology has been actively developed by Luminit since its creation in 2006. Currently, there are two geometries used in HMD and HUD displays: substrate guided and free space. In this paper, we will describe some of their key differences.

Next Generation Optics for the Lighting and Display Industries

Luminit is redefining what's possible in LED light diffusion and holography for Augmented Reality. This presentation is an overview of our core optical technologies, how these technologies solve challenges and our mass-production capabilities. 

Advances in Surface Relief Flat Optics

Growth areas such as LiDAR, Time of Flight and 3D sensing are supported by advanced optical components including surface relief flat optics that provide customized intensity profiles and beam shapes. Advances have been made in this area with Light Shaping MicroOptics (LSMs).

Predicting Scatter of Light Shaping Diffuser® Angles Using Luminit’s Proprietary Optical Model and OpticStudio

To help our customers predict scatter patterns of our most common Light Shaping Diffusers, Luminit developed a proprietary scatter model.

Manufacturability of OLED Encapsulation and Light Extraction

Applications for OLEDs in lighting are opening unique possibilities for designers. A higher-index Luminit Light Shaping Diffuser® developed into a barrier film could be an excellent substrate for OLEDs, encapsulating them while simultaneously supporting them.
