Technology platform TP-1: Free-space photonic components and systems
The aim of the innovation project is to develop the UV nanoimprinted optics deposited on the glass plates used in the company’s glass-based waveguide fabrication technology. The nanoimprinted optics are necessary for re-directing light and for acting as a diffuser at the final layer of the display.
