2 November 1979 Applications Of PLZT Electro-Optic Shutter Stereoscopic Displays

The advent of lead lanthanum zirconate titanate (PLZT) ceramics as electro-optic shutters in light weight, head-worn viewing devices has led to many recent applications for stereoscopic displays. PLZT stereoscopic viewers offer the advantage of essentially unrestricted freedom of head movement while achieving strong binocular depth-of-field sensations using a single CRT display. A survey of recent applications for field-sequential stereoscopic video and computer generated imagery is presented. Video applications include real-time color stereoscopic video for the Remote Underwater Work System (RUWS), a prototype stereoscopic x-ray imagery system, and moving platform stereoscopic imagery. Computer generated stereoscopic imagery applications include computer graphics simulations of an aircraft carrier landing sequence, computer modeling of double helix DNA molecular structures, and stereoscopic displays derived from multispectral satellite imagery.
