Our Story

Leading a digital liberation

Without the need for glasses or headwear, we use the power of light to bring content to life with greater depth and feeling. Our unique Diffractive Lightfield Backlighting (DLB™) technology adds more emotion and energy to screen-based experiences everywhere.

Supporting a community of Lightfield innovators and enthusiasts.

We’re building an expansive 3D Lightfield platform and supporting a vibrant content ecosystem with advanced computer vision algorithms, engaging apps, and software tools. It’s a naturally immersive, fully interactive viewing experience. Reality transcends the screen, intuition takes over. Imagery feels so real, you’ll want to reach out and touch it.

The building blocks

Leia was born of years of R&D in nano-structure design and manufacturing at Hewlett-Packard Labs in Palo Alto, CA. Specializing in the manipulation of light at the nano-scale, company founders David Fattal and Zhen Peng worked on many exciting projects including quantum computing systems, nano-lasters, optical interconnects and plasmonic sensors.

A Fateful Discovery.

On a sunny day in the summer of 2010, a company fire drill forced the team outside along with a nano-patterned prototype. Crowds gathered around as the prototype caught the sun, producing a colorful myriad of directions and creating a holographic-like effect. Right then, Project Leia was born.

A Fateful Discovery

Developing Lightfield as a medium.

In  2014, Leia Inc. successfully spun out of HP Labs with external help from its third founder Pierre-Emmanuel Evreux, and set out to create its own mass-manufacturing facility for Leia’s core nanotechnology. Since then, Leia has built an incredible team of optical scientists, process engineers, computer vision researchers and other app developers, all passionate about Leia’s core mission to build the future of digital interactions.
