Abstract

A stack of liquid-crystal displays is expected to reduce visual fatigue caused by a flat-panel three-dimensional (3D) display. We previously developed a compact depth-fused 3D (DFD) display by using a stack of two twisted-nematic (liquid-crystal) LC panels, but its viewing-angle characteristics and color reproducibility were not so good. Therefore recent wide-view LC panels should be used. We report calculated and measured luminance addition characteristics, which are essential for evaluating 3D display characteristics, of a stack of two multidomain LC panels. We found that LC panels with super in-plane switching, patterned vertical alignment, multiple vertical alignment, and continuous pinwheel alignment modes are suitable for DFD display application.
