Presented by: James Field, NanoVox
In this presentation, Field introduces a cutting-edge, 3D freeform volumetric index of refraction gradient optics (VIRGO) technology platform that includes engineered optical nanocomposites, inkjet-print systems, and custom-designed tools. This technology promises applications in wafer scale optics, AR/VR optics, lightfield display, mobile phone imaging optics, and future developments on the horizon.
