Paper Abstract

The use of holographic optical elements (HOEs) in conjunction with LCDs to make high performance economical autostereoscopic displays is a new and promising development. The very first demonstrators showed that the technique can be used to produce very good quality 3D and 2D images. Our current work is directed at improving performance and exploring other opportunities opened up by the basic concept. These include improved optical design of the HOE and, possibility of using LEDs as light sources and that of using the HOE to generate 3D and at the same time provide color separation to allow the display of full color images on a monochrome LCD without the use of conventional color filters. In addition the use of this technology to display two or more images on the LCD such that two viewers will each see different images on the one display.
