3-D display, micromirror
A novel approach for three-dimensional (3-D) display systems implemented with a micromirror array was proposed, designed, realized, and tested. The major advantages of this approach include the following: 1 micromirrors are reflective and hence achromatic (panchromatic), 2 a wide variety of displays can be used as image sources, and 3 time multiplexing can be introduced on top of space multiplexing to optimize the viewing zone arrangements. A two-view (left and right) 3-D autostereoscopic display system was first constructed. Left- and right-eye views in the forms of both still and motion 3-D scenes were displayed, and viewers were able to fuse the stereo information. A multiview (two left and two right) 3-D autostereoscopic display system was then simulated.
