Paper Abstract

The lenticular lens is widely used to produce autostereoscopic images because of its simplicity. A lenticular lens system is composed of an LCD on which a lenticular lens is attached such that a pair of LCD pixel columns is roughly covered by a single lenticular lenslet. In this case, by the lenslet, the left and right pixel columns are optically separated and made incident to the left and right eyes of the observer, respectively, to produce parallax (see Fig. 1). A lenticular lens system contains a lot of parameters such as period of lenticular lens, focal length and focal position of the lens, period and size of LCD pixel, and observer distance. Since it is almost impossible to optimize a lenticular system in experiments with different lenticular lens sheets, we employ computer simulations to characterize the optical properties of a lenticular lens system and therefore optimize it.
