Optics Meet-Up @ KOMBINAT 01

3 Inputs · Talks · Networking

A strong exper­tise in the design and manu­fac­tu­ring of high-end opti­cal com­pon­ents  – that’s what Jena region is famous for.
Please feel kindly invi­ted to the 3rd edi­tion of a uni­que gathe­ring of lea­ding sci­en­tists and deve­lo­pers, who openly dis­cuss future chal­len­ges in pho­to­nics sys­tem design. This time the com­mu­nity will also raise the ques­tion in how far the local eco­sys­tem can pave the way to an ongo­ing success.


We are loo­king for­ward to wel­come you in the Kom­bi­nat 01 / West­bahn­hof­str. 13.

#1 Magic Leap’s 2 advan­ced AR plat­form and revo­lu­tio­nary optics
Kris­tina Uhlen­dorfTobias Hönle · Magic Leap

Magic Leap’s decade-long focus on pre­mium AR has resul­ted in a revo­lu­tio­nary opti­cal sys­tem. This pre­sen­ta­tion will pro­vide a look at the advan­ce­ments with the new Magic Leap 2 spa­tial AR head­set inclu­ding the novel pro­jec­tor archi­tec­ture that results in the lar­gest FOV deli­ve­red in a com­pact package. Pre­cise eye tracking enab­les the lar­gest, safe and com­for­ta­ble dis­play volume. Cou­pled with a new high per­for­mance CPU and GPU chip­set and indus­try-lea­ding eye­piece manu­fac­tu­ring pro­cess, Magic Leap 2 deli­vers a bright, crisp and uni­form 3D dis­play. Inno­va­tive seg­men­ted dim­ming tech­no­logy means deve­lo­pers can deli­ver solid vir­tual AR con­tent in a wide range of ambi­ent environments.


#2 Will Jena be able to main­tain its posi­tion in the optics and pho­to­nics industry?

Tho­mas Strze­letz · Pho­to­nics Pre­cision Engineering

With its long history, excel­lent uni­ver­sity and rese­arch insti­tu­tes and the local com­pa­nies, Jena is known for its optics and pho­to­nics com­pe­tence and their con­tri­bu­tion to the opti­cal value chain.
Howe­ver, invest­ments in tech­no­lo­gies such as pho­to­nic inte­gra­tion and quan­tum tech­no­logy seem to be shif­ting this struc­ture to other regi­ons. A brief out­look, how these will affect the Jena eco­sys­tem will be briefly explo­red in this presentation.


#3 … and what pro­gress has been made with ima­ging dif­frac­tive optics? Sta­tus, chal­len­ges and per­spec­ti­ves of effi­ci­ency achromatization

Robert Brun­ner · Ernst-Abbe-Hoch­schule Jena › Sci­Tec App­lied Optics

Long before the term »meta-lens« was intro­du­ced, flat dif­frac­tive opti­cal ele­ments (DOEs) found app­li­ca­tion in various ima­ging sys­tems. Today, the ques­tion is whe­ther these DOE-based con­cepts have actually been con­vin­cing in real-world app­li­ca­ti­ons. Here, a par­ti­cu­lar chal­lenge con­cerns dif­frac­tion effi­ci­ency, which is stron­gly wav­elength depen­dent for simple DOEs. In principle, com­plex layer struc­tures offer the pos­si­bi­lity of tailo­ring the effi­ci­ency beha­vior, wher­eby boundary con­di­ti­ons must be taken into account. This con­tri­bu­tion pres­ents the cur­rent sta­tus on these multi-layer DOE con­cepts and discussions.
