Application: Virtual reality display (Patent ID: US20230408870A1)

The patent filed by HTC Corp describes a virtual reality display system that includes a display module and an optical module. The display module consists of a display, liquid crystal cell, first phase retarder, and polarizing directional lens, while the optical module comprises a transflective lens, second phase retarder, reflective polarizer, and lens element. The system is designed to manipulate the polarization states of light emitted by the display to enhance the virtual reality experience.

The claims detail the specific components and functions of the virtual reality display system, including the transformation of linear polarization states to circular polarization states, the focal lengths of images formed by the display light in different states of the liquid crystal cell, and the brightness levels associated with these states. The patent also specifies the switching frequency of the liquid crystal cell states and the use of a twisted nematic liquid crystal array. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive and innovative approach to improving the quality and performance of virtual reality displays through advanced optical technologies.
