Keynote
Consumer mass adoption of AR headsets is conditioned by solving all three immersive displays comfort pillars: wearable, visual and social. To do so, new micro- and nano-fabrication challenges need to be addressed, specifically more efficient waveguide combiners and smaller display engines and sensor fusion systems. Novel nanofabrication techniques are needed to improve the performance of flat optical display systems while allowing for mass production at consumer cost levels. Such novel nano-fabrication technologies push the envelope beyond what is possible today with traditional nano-imprint lithography.
Speaker Biography
Bernard has been involved in Optics and Photonics for the past 25 years as an author, instructor, associate professor, engineer, and hardware development manager in academia, start-ups and multinational corporations, with a focus on micro-optics, diffractive and holographic optics. He successively worked on product developments in the fields of optical computing, optical telecom, optical data storage, optical anti-counterfeiting, industrial optical sensors and more recently in immersive displays for augmented and mixed reality systems. Bernard published several books, holds close to 100 patents, and wrote a few hundred papers on these topics.
He is the 2023 President of the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE). He also set up and chairs various SPIE conferences including the SPIE AR/VR/MR co-located with Photonics West and the SPIE Digital Optical Technologies co-located with Laser Munich. He is also a short course instructor on micro-optics and ARVR displays and hosts the monthly online SPIE AR|VR|MR fireside chats. Bernard held engineering management positions at Google Labs since 2010 (Google Glass) and Microsoft since 2015 (HoloLens). He is since 2021 the Director for XR engineering at Google in Mountain View, CA.
