Abstract

This paper presents an alternative approach for achieving higher optical efficiency in conventional parallax barrier 3D mobile displays. The method entails modifying and enhancing the protrusion structure of conventional Multi-Domain Vertical Alignment (MVA) pixel arrays plus the Storage Capacitors (Cst) of the pixel circuitry which increase effective pixel transmission area by a factor of 1.07. Hiding the modified storage capacitor under the parallax barrier strip increases the barrier gap or slit size by a factor of 1.52. The result is a structure that enhances mobile displays' optical efficiency by a compounded factor slightly over 60% without compromising power consumption.
