Abstract

A volumetric display technique that uses fluorescence excited by a single infrared beam is proposed. A convergent laser beam is used to activate ions locally around the focal point. Three-dimensional scanning by the focal point is achieved by moving an inclined image plane in the direction perpendicular to an optical axis. Preliminary experimental results of three-dimensional image generation in an Er3+-doped fluoride glass excited by a laser beam of 810 nm wavelength are presented.
