Paper Abstract

We designed and fabricated the first, to the best of our knowledge, micromirror array for autostereoscopic 3D display systems. We conducted the optical and Micro-Electrical- Mechanical-System (MEMS) design concurrently, and fabricated several 20x20 micromirror arrays, with micromirror size of 460x460 microns. Both electrostatic and magnetic actuation methods were used to achieve deflection angles of +/- 0.8 degrees. We used these micromirror arrays with backlit transparencies to build a 2-view (left and right) autostereoscopic 3-D display system.
