    Amorphous Silicon Optics Move Out of Infrared

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Junsuk Rho, a professor in POSTECH’s mechanical and chemical engineering departments, has developed a transparent amorphous silicon capable of transmitting visible light. The silicon, with which the researchers were also able to effectively control light in the visible range of the spectrum, is a necessary component to the future development of paper-thin lenses for use in head-mounted displays for real-time virtual and augmented reality.

    The team developed the visibly transparent amorphous silicon by improving the plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) method, which is widely used by display manufacturers, including those in Korea.

    “The discovery of an optical element capable of controlling all visible…
