How Optotune’s Products for Dynamic Light Control Benefit AR/VR Applications
In this presentation I will introduce Optotune’ s key technologies for dynamic light control. These include liquid lenses, pixel shifters, beam-steering mirrors and laser speckle reducers. I will give an overview in which markets and applications our products are currently being used. Key issues of liquid lenses such as thermal drift, gravity coma and lack of suitable AR coatings are addressed, and solutions presented.
In the second part I will present how our products and technologies can benefit the emerging AR/VR market by presenting different use cases such as wobulation/super-resolution in display engines, vergence accommodation in AR, FOV expansion and de-speckling of laser-based light engines.

David Leuenberger received his M. Sc. Degree in Physics from the University of Bern in 2000 and got his PhD from Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne (EPFL) in the field of photonic crystals in 2004. In 2013 he obtained his MBA degree from Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh Business School (EBS). He currently works as Head of Product Management at Optotune. He is interested in the technical and commercial aspects of liquid lenses and optical actuators for various markets ranging from Medical to AR/VR and Automotive.
Optotune develops and manufactures industry shaping active optical components that allow customers around the globe to innovate. Founded in 2008, we started out with our core technology of focus tunable lenses, which was inspired by the working principle of the human eye. Laser speckle reducers, 2D mirrors, tunable prisms and beam shifters are further additions to our product line. Thanks to our deep understanding of optics and mechanics and our passion for technology, Optotune is your ideal partner when it comes to solving challenges where conventional optics fail.View Full Profile
