Abstract

We propose an enhanced three-dimensional integral imaging system using a curved lens array. Incorporation of a curved lens array instead of a conventional flat lens array expands the viewing angle remarkably. The flipped images are eliminated effectively by adopting barriers. The principle of the proposed system is explained and the experimental results are also presented.
