Abstract

A new design of the liquid crystal lenticular (LCL) lens array with interlaced electrodes is proposed to realize an auto-stereoscopic 3D display. The structure of interlaced electrodes aims to generate a desired non-uniform electric filed to improve the focusing ability of the LCL-lens array with lower voltage drives. This paper is organized as first to describe the design criteria of a lenticular lens sheet for wide extended graphics array LCD panel. Based on the designed lenticular lens array, an LCL-lens array with proposed interlaced electrodes is next designed. The fabrication and the detailed structure are given. A series of experiments are then conducted and successfully verify the focusing capability and desired 3D display functions, that is, to separate two images to right and left eyes. Also, the developed auto-stereoscopic 3D display is able to adapt to varied viewer locations with favorable imaging quality.
