Institute of Micromechanics and Photonics – recruitment of candidates for the FovHolo project

Recruitment of candidates for the FovHolo project

The Institute of Micromechanics and Photonics of the Faculty of Mechatronics of the Warsaw University of Technology announces the recruitment of candidates for the position of PhD student to the FovHolo project: Fovea inspired holographic near-eye display.


  • Completed higher education (Master degree) in photonics, optics numerical methods or physics.
  • Experience in conducting numerical or experimental research in the field of optical and photonic methods.
  • Programming in Matlab environment, or other.
  • Knowledge of English, communicativeness, creativity in solving problems, independence, strong motivation to work and carry out scientific research.


Task description:

The research work will be carried out within the NCN OPUS project (ST7): FovHolo: Fovea inspired holographic near-eye display at the Institute of Micromechanics and Photonics at the Faculty of Mechatronics of the Warsaw University of Technology

Research problem concerns augmented reality technology that is going to change the way we interact in our lives. Holography is the only technique supporting all visual ques of human eyes. Research aims to overcome the technological limitations of holographic displays, which requires a huge amount of pixels. Concept of the holographic near-eye display will be introduced, which mimics the human visual system having variable resolution in the field of view. It means that the highest image resolution will be provided only at the gaze direction of the observation. Thus, proposed foveated holographic imaging concept enables large field of view and, simultaneously, large resolution using a smaller number of pixels. The optical system and numerical methods of holographic content generation and processing will be based on eye-like, non-uniform resolution in software and holographic hardware, which can be dynamically changed according to the eye gaze direction.

The PHD may solve numerical or experimental research problems.
