Display Technology (IT)

This group focuses on the various aspects of display technologies including the physical display media, algorithms needed to visualize data, systems and subsystems that present the display, and data formatting needed to interface with the physical display technologies used. New device technologies used for display incorporating OLEDs, holography, MEMS, etc. are within the scope of this group. The evolving field of 3-D display including 3-D data formation, lightfield processing, and 3-D television and electronic cinema are also within the scope of this group. Display holography has been a thrust of this group and expanded efforts on digital as well as analog processes and materials are expected. Techniques for improving visual quality of displays and reducing energy consumption are also of relevance to the group. The group will also investigate display and sensor technologies used for creating augmented reality and interactive environments including interactive control and display algorithms, opto-electronic interfaces, mechanical devices and optical sensors required for implementing interactivity.

Join the OSA Display Technology Technical Group for a webinar debating the future of 3D displays on 29 September 2016 at 14:00 EDT. During the webinar, Dr. Levent Onural (Bilkent University) and Dr. Gordon Wetzstein (Standford University) will be engaging in a lighthearted debate on the relative merits of holographic video and lightfield displays.
Register today to participate in The Debate: Lightfield vs. Holographic! And join the discussion yourself by submitting a question to tgactivities@osa.org to be read during the debate.


The Display Technology Technical Group hosted the first ever Illumicon gathering at this year's Imaging and Applied Optics Congress in Hiedelberg, Germany. The event brought together over 30 individuals to discuss topics related to advanced displays.

You can read the notes from the first Illumicon online now!


The Display Technology Technical Group hosted an introductory webinar for the members of their community. You can now view the 'Introducing the OSA Display Technology Technical Group' webinar on-demand to learn more about this group and recent trends in the display technology field.
