Manufacturing

Lumus offers the highest performance waveguides and a path to mass manufacturing for the consumer market

Our manufacturing processes have been co-developed with supply chain partners to ensure that Lumus waveguides are cost competitive with competing solutions.

How is it made?

Lumus reflective waveguides are made using standard machines
and materials used in the optics industry for more than 100 years.

1. Coating

2. Stacking

3. Slicing

4. Lap & Polish

5. Shaping

6. Testing

Standard tools, Standard materials

Each of these steps are supported by standard glass processing tools and materials and can readily be manufactured in large quantities. Mass production of Lumus waveguides does not require a semiconductor level cleanroom environment. Requirements are at typical optics industry levels.

2D Reflective Waveguide Manufacturing

Mass production processes for Lumus 2D expansion waveguides were co-developed with supply chain partners using well-known machinery and materials to ensure that our waveguides are priced competitively for consumer products.

Record Breaking Yield

Lumus waveguides have been produced by our manufacturing partner Quanta in Taiwan for several years with a yield of more than 95%.

Quanta

Quanta and Lumus have been partners since 2017. The leading Taiwanese ODM already has a mass manufacturing license for several products for which they have already built high volume manufacturing lines.

They have already shipped thousands of Lumus optical engines to several customers, manufacturing both the waveguides and projector modules.
