Abstract

In this paper, we developed an optical model describing the behavior of light at the surface of a slanted lenticular array for autostereoscopic displays in three dimensions and simulated the optical characteristics of autostereoscopic displays using the Monte Carlo method under actual design conditions. The behavior of light is analyzed by light rays for selected inclination and azimuthal angles; numerical aberrations and conditions of total internal reflection for the lenticular array were found. The intensity and the three-dimensional crosstalk distributions calculated from our model coincide very well with those from conventional design software, and our model shows highly enhanced calculation speed that is 67 times faster than that of the conventional software. From the results, we think that the optical model is very useful for predicting the optical characteristics of autostereoscopic displays with enhanced calculation speed.
