Abstract

A three-dimension(3D)/two-dimension(2D) convertible display system is proposed. The proposed system realizes a thin structure by adopting a pinhole array to generate point light sources for 3D display mode from a backlight source. The optical efficiency of 2D display mode is also enhanced using polarization control. By experiments, the proposed method was proven and compared with a previous one.
