Abstract

In this dissertation, I will present the various work I have accomplished in regards to the design, simulation, and fabrication of holovideo and holodeck display technology. This includes: 1) design and analysis of a wavelength division multiplexing LiNbO3 waveguide device, 2) loss characterization and reduction (by way of reverse proton exchange) 3) design of a curved, near-eye AR display, and 4) a basis for acoustic holodeck technology (meant to service a system built from our optical devices). All these accomplishments represent, in concert, a manifestation of LiNbO3's capacity to serve as the building material central to modern holovideo displays. It is my hope that many future technologies will be built using these waveguides as their base.
