Title (EN) HEAD MOUNTED IMAGING APPARATUS WITH OPTICAL COUPLING
(FR) APPAREIL D'IMAGERIE TÊTE HAUTE À COUPLAGE OPTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A head-mounted virtual image display apparatus has a projector that directs image-bearing light beams along a projection axis. A planar waveguide is configured to receive the image-bearing light beams through an input aperture and to form expanded image-bearing light beams that are output from an output aperture of the waveguide. An optical coupler is configured to receive the image-bearing light beams along the projection axis, to reorient the projection axis with respect to the waveguide, to rotate the image-bearing light beams about the projection axis, and to direct the rotated image-bearing beams along the reoriented projection axis through the input aperture of the waveguide.
(FR) Un appareil d'affichage d'images virtuelles monté sur la tête comporte un projecteur qui dirige des faisceaux lumineux portant des images le long d'un axe de projection. Un guide d'ondes plan est configuré pour recevoir les faisceaux lumineux porteurs d'image à travers une ouverture d'entrée et pour former des faisceaux lumineux portant une image étendue qui sont émis à partir d'une ouverture de sortie du guide d'ondes. Un coupleur optique est configuré pour recevoir les faisceaux lumineux porteurs d'image le long de l'axe de projection, pour réorienter l'axe de projection par rapport au guide d'ondes, pour faire tourner les faisceaux lumineux porteurs d'image autour de l'axe de projection, et pour diriger les faisceaux porteurs d'image tournés le long de l'axe de projection réorienté à travers l'ouverture d'entrée du guide d'ondes.
