    Capasso Group’s Largest Metalens to Date Demonstrates Potential in VR

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Researchers led by Federico Capasso at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) have developed a 2-mm achromatic metalens capable of focusing RGB colors without aberrations. The researchers also developed a miniaturized display for virtual reality and augmented reality applications.

    Capasso’s lab was successful in previously developing achromatic aberration-free metalenses in 2018. At just tens of microns in diameter, though, the lenses were too small for practical use in VR and AR applications.

    “This state-of-the-art lens opens a path to a new type of virtual reality platform and overcomes the bottleneck that has slowed the progress of new optical device,” Capasso said. He…
