Abstract: I’ll discuss the future of human computer interface with particular attention to some of the new and emerging display technologies for 3D, augmented reality, and wearable applications. I’ll present our work on MEMS laser scanners, transparent screens based on microlens arrays, and various display technologies including pico-projectors, stereoscopic, auto-stereoscopic, and multi-view displays, and head-mounted projection displays.

Biography: Hakan Urey is a Professor of Electrical Engineering at Koç University in Istanbul-Turkey. He is currently a visiting Professor at Cavendish Lab, Cambridge University, UK. He received the BS degree from Middle East Technical University, Ankara, in 1992, and MS and Ph.D. degrees from Georgia Institute of Technology in 1996 and in 1997, all in Electrical Engineering. After completing his PhD, he joined Microvision Inc., in Seattle area and played a key role in the development of MEMS and micro-optics technologies for Laser Scanning Displays. He was the Principal System Engineer when he left Microvision in 2001 to join the faculty of engineering at Koç University, where he established the Optical Microsystems Research Laboratory (OML). His current research projects are in the areas os wearable and 3D displays, micro-optical screen technologies, MEMS scanners, MEMS biosensors, MEMS thermal imaging sensor arrays, and MEMS spectrometers.

He has more than 30 issued and pending patents, which have been licensed by 5 different companies for commercialization. He published 7 edited books, 4 book chapters, and more than 150 journal and conference papers. He received the Werner Von Siemens faculty excellence award in 2006, TÜBA (Turkish Academy of Sciences) Distinguished Young Scientist award in 2007, Encouragement award from the Turkish Scientific and Technical Research Council (TUBITAK) in 2009, Outstanding Faculty award from Koc University in 2013, and European Research Council Advanced Grant (ERC-AdG) in 2013 to develop next generation wearable and 3D display technologies.
