AR/VR (augmented reality / virtual reality) devices are an exciting new way of visual interaction with the environment in real time. Besides the virtual display, headsets also contain several types of light sources and sensors that enable users to immerse themselves in the virtual world. To ensure a perfect user experience, extensive and highly accurate optical tests are necessary.
Besides standard optical tests, new parameters that are specific to near-eye displays, including eyebox dimensions, are critical for quality assurance. A uniform display is fundamental for an undisturbed viewing experience. Accurate luminance and colors are a basic requirement for natural perception.
Contrast is important for good legibility of virtual text. Distortion of the image due to tolerances in the mechanical and optical setup have an immediate impact on the display quality and must be kept below the human perception threshold.
