Abstract

A reflection-type integral imaging scheme for displaying three-dimensional images is proposed. By use of a concave mirror array instead of a lens array, three-dimensional images are integrated in the form of a reflection type, and the experimental results are demonstrated. This scheme can readily be applied to a large integral imaging system by use of a beam projector that is located at a distance from the mirror-array plane.
