Paper Abstract

An analysis of the basic approaches to flat panel autostereoscopic 3D display is presented, together with a discussion of the application of LCDs in this field. We show that of particular importance in the design of parallax barrier type displays is the diffractive performance of the barriers. A near field diffraction model is used to analyze the detailed illumination structure of the output and can be used to assess viewing freedom and cross talk considerations. A comparison between front and rear parallax barrier displays is given, and compared with experimental result. Recent progress in the design of low cost flat panel 3D displays including a novel viewer position indicator and 2D/3D reconfigurable systems using novel patterned retarder elements are described. We describe the performance and manufacturing considerations for these elements.
