XR Waveguide Supplier

Dispelix develops and delivers waveguide combiners while outsourcing fabrication to nanophotonics foundries.

The world needs pioneers

Dispelix is leading a technological revolution. We believe in the power of simplicity as the driving force of the next computing paradigm. We are here to realize the future, faster, with the best team possible in the field of extended reality waveguide technology.

Our story

Three Finnish research scientists came together to found Dispelix in late 2015.

Since the beginning, our team has been on an exciting journey to enable a truly natural merger of virtual content with the real world. We are driven by a vision to create the best possible waveguides for XR glasses and to make them indistinguishable from ordinary glasses.

Our mission is to enable enjoyable, seamless, and meaningful integration of augmented reality into everyday life. We dream of creating a new world where complexity is replaced by simplicity. A world where devices and user interfaces merge into one – a world with the best waveguides possible.

Our vision

We help create a world where technology does not look like technology. Where complexity is replaced by simplicity. Where unnecessary physical products, interfaces, and advanced technologies become invisible and available for everyone – made possible through our waveguides.

How we operate

We engineer and deliver standard and customized waveguides for XR devices for customers in scalable and high-value markets. Our designs are manufactured by carefully vetted mass production partners.

What we do

Pioneering technology

Customers can use our standard waveguides in their XR devices, or our team can develop something completely custom for them.
