  • Patent number: 10396240
    Abstract: A III-nitride semiconductor light emitting device incorporating n-type III-nitride cladding layers, indium containing III-nitride light emitting region, and p-type III-nitride cladding layers. The light emitting region is sandwiched between n- and p-type III-nitride cladding layers and includes multiple sets of multi-quantum-wells (MQWs). The first MQW set formed on the n-type cladding layer comprises relatively lower indium concentration. The second MQW set comprising relatively moderate indium concentration. The third MQW set adjacent to the p-type cladding layer incorporating relatively highest indium concentration of the three MQW sets and is capable of emitting amber-to-red light. The first two MQW sets are utilized as pre-strain layers. Between the MQW sets, intermediate strain compensation layers (ISCLs) are added. The combination of the first two MQW sets and ISCLs prevent phase separation and enhance indium uptake in the third MQW set.

  • Publication number: 20180039078
    Abstract: A split exit pupil heads-up display (HUD) system and method. The HUD system architecture makes use of a split exit pupil design method that enables a modular HUD system and allows the HUD system viewing eye-box size to be tailored while reducing the overall volumetric aspects. A single HUD module utilizes a micro-pixel imager to generate a HUD virtual image with a given viewing eye-box size. When integrated together into a single HUD system, a multiplicity of such a HUD modules displaying the same image enables an integrated HUD system to have an eye-box size that equals the same multiple of the eye-box size of a single HUD module. The brightness of the integrated HUD system is maintained while the eye-box size becomes multiple size of the eye-box of a single module. The integrated HUD system can be comprised of multiplicity of single HUD modules to scale the eye-box size to match the intended application while maintaining system brightness.

  • Publication number: 20170184776
    Abstract: Emissive micro-pixel spatial light modulators with non-telecentric emission are introduced. The individual light emission from each multi-color micro-scale emissive pixel is directionally modulated in a unique direction to enable application-specific non-telecentric emission pattern from the micro-pixel array of the emissive spatial light modulator. Design methods for directionally modulating the light emission of the individual micro-pixels using micro-pixel level optics are described. Monolithic wafer level optics methods for fabricating the micro-pixel level optics are also described. An emissive multi-color micro-pixel spatial light modulator with non-telecentric emission is used to exemplify the methods and possible applications of the present invention: ultra-compact image projector, minimal cross-talk 3D light field display, multi-view 2D display, and directionally modulated waveguide optics for see-through near-eye displays.

  • Publication number: 20170176744
    Abstract: Split exit pupil (or split eye-box) heads-up display (HUD)systems and methods are described. The described HUD system methods make use of a split exit pupil design method that enables a modular HUD system and allows the HUD system viewing eye-box size to be tailored while reducing the overall HUD volumetric aspects. A HUD module utilizes a high brightness small size micro-pixel imager to generate one or more HUD virtual images with a one or a plurality of given viewing eye-box segment sizes. When integrated together into a HUD system, a multiplicity of such HUD modules displaying the same image would enable such an integrated HUD system to have an eye-box size that is substantially larger than the eye-box size of a HUD module. The resultant integrated HUD system volume is substantially volumetrically smaller than a HUD system that uses a single larger imager.

  • Publication number: 20170108697
    Abstract: A dual-mode augmented/virtual reality near-eye wearable display for use with a curved lens element. The lenses are provided with one or more transparent waveguide elements that are disposed within the thickness of the lenses. The waveguide elements are configured to couple display images directly from image sources such as emissive display imagers to an exit aperture or plurality of exit aperture sub-regions within a viewer's field of view. In a preferred embodiment, a plurality of image sources are disposed on the peripheral surface of the lenses whereby each image source has a dedicated input image aperture and exit aperture sub-region that are each “piecewise flat” and have matched areas and angles of divergence whereby a viewer is presented with the output of the plurality of image source images within the viewer's field of view.
