UniKLasers Ltd in partnership with RPMC Lasers, our distribution partners in the USA, will be sponsoring a webinar on Tue, Jun 12, 2018 1:00P EDT “Holography for Display: From AR to HUD to 3D”, presented by Prof Pierre-Alexandre Blanche from the University of Arizona. The webinar will discuss the technology of holographic optical elements and their use in display systems where the size and weight of optics must be constrained.
Pierre-Alexandre Blanche is research professor of optics at the University of Arizona’s College of Optical Sciences. Before joining the University of Arizona in 2006, he was a space instrumentation specialist at the Centre Spatial de Liège, University of Liège (Belgium) from 1999 to 2006, where he worked on the design of space instruments. He received his Ph.D. in physics in the field of nonlinear optics and holography from the University of Liège in 1999, and his bachelor of science degree from the University of Liège in 1994. In Belgium, he co-founded a company for manufacturing large-volume phase gratings for the optics and aerospace industries. He is the author of more than 50 papers on optics and holography and has contributed chapters on holography to numerous books, including the Handbook of Optical Engineering, 2nd edition. He holds nine patents.
Blanche and his team recently used holography to improve head-up displays that overlay images onto the windshields of cars and aircraft. His research interests include diffraction optics, 3D display, nonlinear, and photonic materials.
