Abstract:

THE PHASE I PLAN IS TO BUILD A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT MODEL FOR A FULL-RESOLUTION, AUTOSTEREOSCOPIC LCD DISPLAY. IT WILL USE A SUPER-FAST, FERROELECTRIC LCD IN COMBINATION WITH AN INNOVATIVE FLAT-PANEL, LCD-BASED AUTOSTEREOSCOPIC THREE-DIMENSIONAL DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY THAT REQUIRES NO GLASSES. TWO IMPORTANT FEATURES WILL BE IMPLEMENTED: AN EXPANDED VIEWING ZONE AND A HOLOGRAM-LIKE "LOOK-AROUND" CAPABILITY. BOTH OF THESE FUNCTIONS WILL BE REALIZED BY PASSIVE MEANS, THAT IS, WITHOUT TRACKING THE POSITION OF THE OBSERVER'S HEAD. THESE IMPROVEMENTS ARE IMPORTANT IN THE PROPOSED APPLICATION OF VISUALIZING COMPLEX FLUID FLOW PHENOMENA AND IN OTHER SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS. THEY WILL ALLOW THE VIEWING OF IMAGES BY SEVERAL OBSERVERS SIMULTANEOUSLY, REMOVE RESTRICTIONS ON HEAD MOVEMENTS, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME ALLOW NON-HOLOGRAPHIC, THREE-DIMENSIONAL IMAGING IN WHICH DIFFERENT VIEWS OF THE OBJECT OR SCENE WOULD BE VISIBLE, DEPENDING ON THE OBSERVER'S PERSPECTIVE.
