Corning, WaveOptics Enter AR Partnership

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
Glass supplier Corning Inc. and diffractive waveguide manufacturer WaveOptics Ltd. have entered into a long-term supply agreement for augmented reality (AR) optics.

Corning will provide ultra-flat, high-index glass wafers for WaveOptics’ waveguides, the key optical component in AR wearable devices. WaveOptics’ nanostructures will be imprinted on the glass wafers and made into waveguides using a well-defined manufacturing process.

As part of the agreement, Corning will also provide materials science expertise to support WaveOptics’ continued advancements in waveguide manufacturing.

Glossary
augmented reality
Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that integrates digital information, typically in the form of computer-generated graphics, images, or data, with the real-world environment in real-time. AR enhances the user's perception of the physical world by overlaying or combining digital content onto the user's view of the real world, often through devices like smartphones, tablets, smart glasses, or specialized AR headsets. Key features and principles of augmented reality: Real-time...
nano
An SI prefix meaning one billionth (10-9). Nano can also be used to indicate the study of atoms, molecules and other structures and particles on the nanometer scale. Nano-optics (also referred to as nanophotonics), for example, is the study of how light and light-matter interactions behave on the nanometer scale. See nanophotonics.
