Jannick Rolland, the Brian J. Thompson Professor of Optical Engineering and director of the Center for Freeform Optics, has been inducted to Augmented World Expo’s (AWE) inaugural class of the XR Hall of Fame. Featuring 101 inaugural inductees, the XR Hall of Fame honors the pioneers whose groundbreaking contributions have shaped and propelled the extended reality industry forward.

The XR Hall of Fame noted Rolland as an “optical see-through head-mounted display pioneer.” She and her fellow inductees will be recognized at the AWE USA 2024 event taking place in June in Long Beach, California.
