Title: Autostereoscopic projection viewer

Abstract

An autostereoscopic viewer is employed to produce aberration corrected images to simulate a virtual presence by employing pairs of projector optical components coupled with an image corrector plate and a field lens. Images are designed with magnifications and optical qualities and positioned at predetermined eyezones having controlled directional properties. The viewer's eyes are positioned in these eyezones. The size of these zones is related to the aperture of the projection lenses, the magnification produced by the Fresnel(s), and the optical properties and position of the image corrector plate.

  • An apparatus is described for viewing through a tube any desired internal portion of a reactor. A convex head mounted with a plurality or negative lenses with their axes substantially intersecting is fixed in the tube nearest the portion to be viewed. The interior of the tube is filled with a liquid transparent to light and opaque to neutrons and gamma rays. The lense may be made from polymerized methyl methacrylate and aqueous zinc chloride is a suitable transparent liquid.
  • A submerged ultrasonic viewer for use in a liquid metal cooled fast reactor vessel to detect floated reactor core components includes an ultrasonic transducer, a transducer scanning drive mechanism and a related electrical control circuit, an image display circuit, and a reflecting surface. A handling head of a core element or a reflecting plate, is improved to enhance image accuracy by providing the reflecting surface with at least one continuously curved surface having a convex or a concave contour, or plural continuously curved surfaces with concave and convex contours.
  • An optical system is described that is compatible with extreme ultraviolet radiation and comprises five reflective elements for projecting a mask image onto a substrate. The five optical elements are characterized in order from object to image as concave, convex, concave, convex, and concave mirrors. The optical system is particularly suited for ring field, step and scan lithography methods. The invention uses aspheric mirrors to minimize static distortion and balance the static distortion across the ring field width which effectively minimizes dynamic distortion. The present invention allows for higher device density because the optical system has improved resolution that resultsmore » from the high numerical aperture, which is at least 0.14.« less

  • An optical system compatible with short wavelength (extreme ultraviolet) radiation comprising four optical elements providing five reflective surfaces for projecting a mask image onto a substrate. The five optical surfaces are characterized in order from object to image as concave, convex, concave, convex and concave mirrors. The second and fourth reflective surfaces are part of the same optical element. The optical system is particularly suited for ring field step and scan lithography methods. The invention uses aspheric mirrors to minimize static distortion and balance the static distortion across the ring field width, which effectively minimizes dynamic distortion.
