Ansys’ James Pond and Anthony Jouanin describe how to optimize the performance of heads-up displays (HUDs) with Ansys Lumerical’s FDTD, STACK and Ansys SPEOS. This interoperability offers an invaluable workflow for simulating light at the macroscopic scale while considering the transmissive and reflective properties of materials at the micro/nano scale. It enables engineers to explore the functional design of these materials and to capture the impact of spectral and polarization dependence on their optical properties. With a focus on HUD design, the webinar demonstrates how engineers can simulate nano-patterned thin film and plasmonic surfaces to optimize the appearance of HUDs on automobile windscreens for a wide variety of display and lighting conditions.
The webinar begins with an introduction to Lumerical and SPEOS tools. Next is an overview of the interoperability workflow with a description of the various types of information that can be shared between Lumerical tools and SPEOS. Finally, James and Anthony discuss various approaches to windscreen coating design for HUDs including the use of thin films, spherical plasmonic particles, and dual period plasmonic particles.
