A High Resolution Aerial 3D Display Using a Directional Backlight
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2470-1173.2016.5.SDA-444a  Published OnlineFebruary 2016

This article describes a high resolution aerial 3D display using a time-division multiplexing directional backlight. In this system, an aerial real image is generated with a pair of large convex lenses. The directional backlight is controlled based on the detected face position so that binocular stereoscopy may be maintained for a moving observer. By use of the directional backlight, the proposed system attains autostereoscopy without any moving parts. A wide viewing zone is realized by placing a large aperture convex lens between the backlight and the LCD panel. With the advantage of time-division multiplexing, a high resolution 3D image is presented to the viewer. [DOI: 10.2352/J.ImagingSci.Technol.2015.59.6.060402]
