Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A flat panel, compact virtual image projection diaplay is presented. It is based on a light-guided optical configuration that includes three linear holographic gratings recorded on one planar transparent substrate so as to obtain a magnified virtual image for a small input display. The principles of the projection display, unique design, and procedures for experimentally recording an actual planar configuration are presented, along with evaluation results. The results reveal that a field of view of ±8° can be readily achieved at a distance of 36 cm, making such planar configurations attractive for head-up displays.
