Application: Eyepiece for virtual, augmented, or mixed reality systems (Patent ID: US20230417986A1)

The patent filed by Magic Leap Inc. describes an eyepiece for an augmented reality display system that includes a waveguide substrate with various gratings to manipulate light beams. The input coupler grating couples input light beams into guided light beams, which are then divided and spread by the orthogonal pupil expander (OPE) and spreader gratings, respectively. The exit pupil expander (EPE) grating redirects the light beams to exit the waveguide substrate. The eyepiece is designed for virtual reality, augmented reality, or mixed reality systems and can project color components of image data.

The eyepiece is thin, less than 325 microns thick, and can be made of materials like glass, plastic, or polycarbonate. It includes multiple OPE and spreader gratings to manipulate light beams effectively. The input coupler grating can divide and redirect input light beams into guided light beams, which are further divided by the OPE gratings. The EPE grating then redirects the light beams to exit the substrate. The design allows for efficient manipulation and distribution of light beams within the waveguide substrate, enhancing the overall performance of the augmented reality display system.
