This paper discusses questions of the design of structured optical systems with a periodically repeated group of elements in the form of rhomb–prisms for transmitting an image from a microdisplay to the observer’s eyes. Recommendations are given for selecting the parameters of the prism elements that make up the waveguide screen.
