Compact Head Displays for Pilots

Prof. Asher Friesem
Prof. Asher Friesem was among the first in the world to become involved in the technology of planar optics. In this technology, several diffractive optical components are combined on the surface of one substrate to enable the formation of a complete optical system mounted on a thin, single transparent plate.


Elop, Electro-Optics Industries Ltd. in Kiryat Weizmann, develops compact head displays for pilots based on Friesem’s technology. Manufacture of head displays for doctors and for virtual reality systems are under consideration by other companies.
