Abstract

A novel approach to an integral imaging system using a pliable plastic optical fiber array is proposed. The proposed system has the advantage that it can utilize a light source for three-dimensional (3D) images at an arbitrary location because the point light sources are formed by the plastic fiber array with flexible optical paths. Two-dimensional images can also be expressed in the proposed system. The light efficiency of this system is high compared with previous point light source array integral imaging systems. The feasibility of the proposed method is explained and demonstrated with experiments.
