Synopsys, a developer of the industrial standard optical design software, CODEV, recently announced the winners of the Robert S. Hilbert Memorial Optical Design Competition 2023. The Wyant College of Optical Sciences undergraduate team, Carolyn Hokin, Shriniketh Sreevatsan, Adam Wan, Yiran Xie and Mina Yoo won the top award. The team, a group of classmates in their senior year at the Wyant College, received an award for their OPTI340 final optical design project, titled “Compact Relay for Image Steering in Augmented Reality."
They are instructed by Prof. Yuzuru Takashima who said, "The project well demonstrates teams’ understanding of concepts: diffraction and image formation as well as ability to integrate them as a working design, by following the practice of optical design. Congratulations to team “C0ma”!" They used CODE V to develop multiple prototypes of an augmented reality (AR) diffractive image steering system that is compact, lightweight, and efficient. Congratulations!
