Title: Mastering challenges in holography with widely tunable CW optical parametric oscillators
Job Fair – Moscone Center
Tuesday 25 January 10AM to 5PM
Wednesday 26 January 10AM to 5PM
META will be demonstrating a range of photonic, electro-optical and electro-magnetic component capabilities products, technologies, and capabilities at the show, including:
- ARfusion™, which combines a precision cast optical manufacturing process incorporating functional high-performance components. AR developers now have a one-stop-shop platform for integrating smart technologies into devices, including lightweight plastic HUD’s and ophthalmic AR glasses.
- holoOPTIX™ – Volume Holographic Grating (VPG) films for custom AR displays and industrial filters based on Covestro’s Bayfol® HX photopolymer chemistry
- metaAIR® – Protective glasses and films that guard professionals from dangerous laser eye glare strikes
- NANOWEB® – High volume, highly transparent, conductive nanostructures for active and passive 5G antennas, reflectors, heaters, EMI shielding and other transparent integrated electronic functionality in consumer, medical and automotive products
- KolourOptik® – A nano structuring platform, used to create sub-wavelength high aspect ratio pixels with multi-faceted microstructures for printed visual effects or other plasmonic metasurfaces
“The wide range of photonics products and solutions we are showcasing at Photonics West 2022 highlights the breadth of our platform technology, which encompasses holography, lithography, and nano-optics, as well as proprietary manufacturing processes, such as automated lens casting for ARfusion™ and rolling mask lithography,” said Gardner Wade, Chief Product Officer. “With our expanding roll-to-roll production capability, META is pioneering metamaterials and photonic components production at commercial scale.”
holoOPTIX™ SLANT is a range of holographic notch filters that offer unique diffraction characteristics in an industry standard 1″ diameter form factor, suitable for industrial and scientific instrumentation applications. At SPIE Photonics West, META will demonstrate a range of SLANT filters at 12nm interval steps to cover the entire visible spectrum (full-color) from 450nm to 645nm with a tolerance of +/-2nm. The holoOPTIX™ range offers full-color reflective filters for large area applications with potentially unprecedented color saturation and excellent mechanical properties recorded by META’s one-step volume holographic proprietary process. Conventional reflective color filters with multiple layers of dielectric thin films cannot simultaneously produce a low-cost, large area and good mechanical properties due to the complex multiple depositions, the use of rare-earth/exotic materials and the difference in the thermal expansion coefficients among the material layers which can lead to delamination. In addition, holoOPTIX™ SLANT filters offer narrow, high optical density stop bands like conventional notch filters, but instead of reflecting the incoming light specularly (angle of incidence equals angle of reflection) the diffracted portion of the beam is uniquely customized to reflect into an angle that is different than the angle of incidence.
