AbstractThis thesis presents a novel concept of Augmented Reality (AR) Near-to-Eye Display (NED) design which combines Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) and Volume Hologram Grating (VHG) to achieve two complimentary novel concepts: 1) Single-chip, Field of View (FOV) selective, and variable resolution image projection, and 2) Multiplexed full color image transfer via a single image guide, to achieve full color, 90 degrees FOV, and retinal image resolution. The proposed AR NED design provides solutions to simultaneously solve three main optical challenges that occurs in the current commercial AR-NED, which are: 1) material limited FOV; 2) étendue conservation, and 3) limited display resolution.
