UA Optics Professors Look To Perfect ‘Augmented Reality’ Eyeglasses

University of Arizona scientists are working to perfect a new type of holographic display technology that can be incorporated into eyeglasses to superimpose video images on a user’s real-world view.

UA optical sciences professors Nasser Peyghambarian and Lloyd LaComb Jr. have licensed technology developed in UA labs along with other patented technology to form EARDG Photonics Inc. and bring the invention to market.

Peyghambarian, UA chair of photonics and lasers, said EARDG (which stands for “enhanced augmented reality display glasses”) represents an important leap forward because the technology eventually could be incorporated into regular eyeglasses.
