Abstract
This project proposes to investigate the efficiencies of several material systems in which the ability to draw three dimensional images in red, green, and blue using two-step, two-frequency upconversion in a solid-state medium has already been demonstrated. The technology under investigation provides true RGB three-dimensional display capabilities which feature unlimited, unencumbered viewing access to large numbers of users simultaneously. The display can be viewed through all sides, and from any angle, and does not require the use of any type of viewing apparatus. This technology may potentially yield a novel method for the display of complicated tactical environments, providing improved critical feature extraction, and allowing for faster and more accurate evaluation. A comparison of material systems will be made based on measured intrinsic optical properties which have been shown to fundamentally determine upconversion efficiency. Material systems in which the three colors can be optimized will be identified and recommended for full-scale system development in Phase II.
