Emissive displays, such as those made from OLED or microLED technology, can present quality control challenges. Because each individual LED/microLED is its own emitter, these displays can be subject to a wide variation in luminance and color. To produce salable displays with a uniform appearance for the market, manufacturers need display metrology systems that can measure and correct displays at the pixel and subpixel level. See a case study of microLED correction with Jasper Display Corp.

AR/VR/MR displays are viewed just 1 - 3 inches from the surface of the eye, meaning any defects or lack of clarity in the display image can be glaringly obvious. Additionally, display performance issues such as slow refresh rate or distortion can negatively impact the user experience, even causing physical symptoms such as nausea and dizziness. Learn about mitigating these human factors in NED displays.

Head-up displays (HUDs) are starting to become a feature of new automobile models. Current 2D HUD technology projects flat images on a fixed viewing field, but soon a new generation of AR-enabled HUD systems integrated with automotive sensor data will project dynamic 3D images that interact with the visual environment. For accuracy and safety, HUD systems demand rigorous quality testing.

From computer keyboards to movie theaters, from car dashboards to airplane fasten-seatbelt signs, backlit symbols are all around us. A backlit sign is illuminated by a light source that is placed behind a stenciled surface that allows light to shine through, creating illuminated text and symbols. LIght and color measurement systems from Radiant help manufacturers ensure that backlit devices and signs are clear and visible—especially in cars and aricraft, where they convey key safety information.
