Diffractive optics such as holographic optical elements (HOE) can provide transparent and narrow band components with arbitrary incident and diffracted angles for near to eye consumer electronic products for augmented (AR), virtual reality (VR), and smart glass applications. In this talk, we will summarize the general optical geometries relevant for near to eye displays, the holographic materials available for these applications, their performance characteristics and ease of manufacture.
