Paper Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the design and fabrication of ultra-light weight projection lenses for color wearable displays. Driven by field of view requirements from 40 degree to 90 degrees, we employed the combination of plastic, glass, and diffractive optics to yield less than 10g optics per eye. The approach centers on the use of projection optics instead of eyepiece optics to yield most compact and high image quality designs. The implementation of the fabricated 52 degrees lens in a teleportal head-mounted display and remote collaborative environment is demonstrated. We also present the design results for a 70 degrees design.
