Carloyn Hokin, Shriniketh Sreevatsan, Adam Wan, Yiran Xie, and Mina Yoo are undergraduate students in optical sciences at the University of Arizona. The team received an award for their project titled, “Compact Relay for Image Steering in Augmented Reality.” They used CODE V to develop multiple prototypes of an augmented reality (AR) diffractive image steering system that is compact, lightweight, and efficient.
The team provided the following comments:
“I am honored to have my team’s design recognized, and to have been selected to receive this award,” said Hokin. “Special thanks to Dr. Yuzuru Takashima for guidance throughout this project and to my teammates for all their hard work!”
“This award unequivocally validates my profound dedication to optical design,” said Sreevatsan. “I am both humbled and deeply honored to stand among this year’s recipients.”
“Winning this award is a testament to my fascination for optical design and the thrill of transforming theoretical knowledge into practical applications,” said Xie. “As an international student, I deeply appreciate the unwavering support from my advisor, Prof. Yuzuru Takashima, and my team members who stood by me through every challenge we encountered. This experience has been both encouraging and empowering.”
“I am honored that our team was selected as one of the winners in the competition,” said Yoo. “This achievement will inspire me for future endeavors in optical design. Using CODE V greatly facilitated the optical designing process and also improved my understanding of optical designing. Additionally, I want to express gratitude to our hardworking team members for their collaborative efforts and commitment. Lastly, I sincerely thank Professor Takashima Yuzuru for his invaluable support and guidance throughout the project.”
