Beam combiners and splitters based on the frustrated total internal reflection, diffraction and refraction effects of light beams are considered. New high efficiency prismatic beam combiner consisting of uniform material is proposed.
Glassless multi-view projection display system that combines the modules of capturing three-dimensional objects, image processing (creation of 3D files) and display screen with a holographic diffuser is presented. Optical simulations of lenticular and two-dimensional microlens arrays are performed with the aim to determine optimal lenticular sheets, view angle, view number, depth, etc. Effects of crosstalk and ghost-imaging are studied both numerically and experimentally. Multi-projector system is designed and 3D images on 30-inch screen are demonstrated.
