Head-Up Display Applications of a Compound Micro-lens Array

The purpose of this project is to design a compact optical component that will be used in tandem with a display panel to use in Head-Up Display systems. The essence of the optical component design is the use of micro-lens arrays. Micro-lens arrays are thin, usually planar lenses composed of much smaller lens-lets with diameters usually in the order of 10 to 100 microns. Using micro-lens arrays, the optical system can be reduced to a couple of “sheets” of micro-lens arrays or less, allowing for compactness of the system. Designing with micro-lens arrays presents a set of challenges such as overcoming the minimum accommodation of the eye, and light interference between each lens-let on the micro-lens array. Over the course of the project, solutions to these challenges will be sought after. Also, the micro-lens will be computer modeled and simulated for validation of the design.
