Knight Optical's Diamond Turned Aspheric Lenses for Virtual Reality Headsets
14 Apr 2017
Virtuality Reality headsets which are typically know as HMDs (head mounted displays) consist of a pair of lenses which typically forms an image directly into the eyes of the wearer. The lenses shape and focus the picture for each eye thus creating a stereoscopic 3D image
Optical aberration typically occur in common spherical singlet lenses which results in an image that appears distorted. Consequently HMD manufacturers have started to incorporate aspherical lenses which can replace multiple element systems. Aspheric lenses allows a single component lens to collimate or focus highly divergent rays, potentially replacing a multi-lens system.
Knight Optical offers diamond turned aspherics from a range of visible materials including Quartz, BK7, UV fused silica (UVFS), SF11, acrylic and plexiglass.
Our Aspheric lenses are checked for quality in our state-of-the-art Metrology laboratory using equipment from Trioptics, Varian and Starret allowing us to work to the highest QA standards and meet the tolerance specifications on these precision components.
