Abstract

The design principles of a viewing lens for v irtual reality are discussed, and a design example given. Used with a 2.2" colour LCD. The system gives a 12°c field of view for each eye. Monochromatic and chromatic aberrations are corrected for all the points in the field, while the large barrel distortion of the lens is compensated by a reverse compression ot the image on the LCD, The system can establish a good stereoscopic view with a strong sense of immersion.
