WHITE PAPER: Measuring luminance and color of near-eye display virtual images

As the development of near-eye display devices, such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) ramps up, it is important to understand  that optical metrology of these devices poses challenges, and any radiance or luminance meter that is used to measure virtual images must conform to certain optical requirements. Photo Research has developed products designed to attach to its spectroradiometers that allows the user to measure light from VR target areas in the range 0.3 – 6 mm. Measurements include spectral radiance, luminance, chromaticity, and CCT. The Photo Research Augmented (AR) & Virtual Reality (VR) Accessory Lens is a robust, cost-effective solution for optical metrology in the near-eye display market.
