Paper Abstract

We consider an on-axis AR optical system and its design process. As a source of light and imagea monochromic-green AMOLED SXGA micro-display is used. Size of display is 15.36 x 12.29 mm (19.67 mm diagonal, 0.77'') with pixel pitch 12 μm. For this project we consider the system with the field of view 30° and the minimum pupil diameter 10 mm. Usually AR systems based on off-axis layout with decentered and tilted elements and surfaces, this may add difficulties during mechanical mounting.However, on-axis system is possible based on spherical semi-transparent combiner together with additional plane mirror. Dimensions of designed system are suitable for head-mounting and the systemis simpler to produce and construct comparing to analogs. Although such systems are well known we present a design procedure and research of the element parameters which can be useful for future design in various areas.
