A reflection-type three-dimensional (3D) screen using retroreflector is proposed to improve the visibility of a projected 3D image while keeping its perspective. For the projection-type 2D display, the diffuser is used to represent the 2D scene, overcoming the limitation of the aperture of the projection lens set. If the diffuser is adopted for the projected 3D image, only 2D images sectioned and blurred should be displayed on the screen. The proposed screen can make the 3D image with the aperture limitation visible to be applied to the 3D image projection systems. The feasibility of the proposed screen is verified by experiments.
