 We have previously introduced a monolithic, integrated optical platform for transparent, flat-panel holographic displays suitable for near-to-eye displays in augmented reality systems. This platform employs a guided-wave acousto-optic spatial light modulator implemented in lithium niobate in conjunction with an integrated Bragg-regime reflection volume hologram. In this paper, we depict analysis of three key system attributes that inform and influence the display system performance: 1) single-axis diffraction-driven astigmatism, 2) strobed illumination to enforce acousto-optic grating stationarity, and 3) acousto-optically driven spatial Nyquist rate.
