Abstract:

“We report a liquid lens based optical see-through head mounted display that can simultaneously display both a maxwellian view and a hologram. Holograms are reconstructed by an angular spectrum layer based synthesis method. A hologram and Maxwellian view are simultaneously displayed by focusing the liquid lens from 0 D to 20 D with 60 Hz. The hologram is reconstructed at a position 1.5 m from the eye, and it is confirmed that the Maxwellian view is clear, even if the focus of the eye changes from 50 cm to 1.7 m. In the proposed system, the liquid lens acts as a low-pass filter. Since the PSNR is about 23 dB in the currently used 10 mm diameter liquid lens, the image quality is not adequate. However, we successfully verify the feasibility of our proposed system. In addition, if a large diameter liquid lens of 30 mm or more is applied, excellent image quality of 30 dB or more can be realized.”
