In integral imaging, the quality of a reconstructed image degrades with increasing viewing angle due to the wavefront aberrations introduced by the lens-array. A wavefront aberration correction method is proposed to enhance the image quality with a pre-filtering function array (PFA). To derive the PFA for an integral imaging display, the wavefront aberration characteristic of the lens-array is analyzed and the intensity distribution of the reconstructed image is calculated based on the wave optics theory. The minimum mean square error method is applied to manipulate the elemental image array (EIA) with a PFA. The validity of the proposed method is confirmed through simulations as well as optical experiments. A 45-degree viewing angle integral imaging display with enhanced image quality is achieved.
