That’s Where PixClear® Comes In

PixClear’s high refractive index nanocrystals and formulations allow Pixelligent to achieve the widest FoV waveguides available in the XR market. Our PixClear® formulations can be applied using nanoimprint lithography (NIL) and ink jet processes to create optical structures that feature:

  • Refractive Indices Of 1.7-2.0+
  • Robust Mechanical Properties That Are Critical to The Waveguide Structures
  • High Transparency of > 95%
  • Low Haze of < 0.10

The Extended Reality (XR) market, including Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (MR) devices, has the potential to redefine and disrupt the personal communication device market in the same way mobile phones and smartphones did in the 1990s and 2000s.

Like mobile phones and smartphones, XR device manufacturing and development relies on certain key technologies. Central among these are the optical waveguides applied to the lenses that take the image projected on the inside of a lens and project it to the other side of the lens, delivering a clear image to the user. Our PixClear® products enable the highest-index waveguides, with the most robust mechanical properties available in the market.
