A III-nitride semiconductor light emitting device incorporating n-type III-nitride cladding layers, indium containing III-nitride light emitting region, and p-type III-nitride cladding layers. The light emitting region is sandwiched between n- and p-type III-nitride cladding layers and includes multiple sets of multi-quantum-wells (MQWs). The first MQW set formed on the n-type cladding layer comprises relatively lower indium concentration. The second MQW set comprising relatively moderate indium concentration. The third MQW set adjacent to the p-type cladding layer incorporating relatively highest indium concentration of the three MQW sets and is capable of emitting amber-to-red light. The first two MQW sets are utilized as pre-strain layers. Between the MQW sets, intermediate strain compensation layers (ISCLs) are added. The combination of the first two MQW sets and ISCLs prevent phase separation and enhance indium uptake in the third MQW set. The third MQW set, as a result, retains sufficiently high indium concentration to emit amber-to-red light of high output power without any phase separation associated problems.

A dual-mode augmented/virtual reality near-eye wearable display for use with a curved lens element. The lenses are provided with one or more transparent waveguide elements that are disposed within the thickness of the lenses. The waveguide elements are configured to couple display images directly from image sources such as emissive display imagers to an exit aperture or plurality of exit aperture sub-regions within a viewers field of view. In a preferred embodiment, a plurality of image sources are disposed on the peripheral surface of the lenses whereby each image source has a dedicated input image aperture and exit aperture sub-region that are each piecewise flat and have matched areas and angles of divergence whereby a viewer is presented with the output of the plurality of image source images within the viewers field of view.


A wearable system with a gestural interface for wearing on, for instance, the wrist of a user. The system comprises an ultrasonic transceiver array structure and may comprise a pico projector display element for displaying an image on a surface. User anatomical feature inputs are received in the form of ultrasound signals representative of a spatio-temporal cross-section of the wrist of the user by articulating wrist, finger and hand postures, which articulations are translated into gestures. Inputs from inertial and other sensors are used by the system as part of the anatomical feature posture identification method and device. Gestures are recognized using a mathematically-modeled, simulation-based set of biological metrics of tissue objects, which gestures are converted to executable computer instructions. Embodiments of the system disclosed herein may also be used to monitor biometric and health data over computer networks or using onboard systems.

A compression method for high-resolution light field display is disclosed for applications in which computer memory constraints and latency are critical. The disclosed compression algorithm takes advantage of the 3D structure of a light field to compress the raw light field information with a fixed compression ratio and simple decoding instructions. The compressed high-resolution light field achieves a reduced bandwidth with acceptable quality, and is packed in a way that can be transmitted using common interfaces. In a preferred embodiment, the compression algorithm is used as a post-processing stage after light field information acquisition or after rendering. In a further preferred embodiment, the compression algorithm is incorporated into the acquisition or rendering procedure to reduce memory and rendering processing. These and further embodiments generate a compressed light field with all information required for direct display.


Split exit pupil (or split eye-box) heads-up display (HUD)systems and methods are described. The described HUD system methods make use of a split exit pupil design method that enables a modular HUD system and allows the HUD system viewing eye-box size to be tailored while reducing the overall HUD volumetric aspects. A HUD module utilizes a high brightness small size micro-pixel imager to generate one or more HUD virtual images with a one or a plurality of given viewing eye-box segment sizes. When integrated together into a HUD system, a multiplicity of such HUD modules displaying the same image would enable such an integrated HUD system to have an eye-box size that is substantially larger than the eye-box size of a HUD module. The resultant integrated HUD system volume is substantially volumetrically smaller than a HUD system that uses a single larger imager. Furthermore, the integrated HUD system can be comprised of a multiplicity of HUD modules to scale the eye-box size to match the intended application while maintaining a given desired overall HUD system brightness.

Preprocessing of the light field input data for full parallax compressed light field 3D display systems is described. The described light field input data preprocessing can be utilized to format or extract information from input data, which can then be used by the light field compression system to further enhance the compression performance, reduce processing requirements, achieve real-time performance and reduce power consumption. This light field input data preprocessing performs a high-level 3D scene analysis and extracts data properties to be used by the light field compression system at different stages. As a result, rendering of redundant data is avoided while at the same rendering quality is improved.
