Abstract

A special holographic optical element (HOE) which is used as an image splitter is developed to generate a stereogram on a 2.2-in. liquid crystal display panel. The special designed holographic optical element can be attached on the conventional panel directly to replace the traditional image splitter in a stereoscopic display panel. Experimental results show that two images corresponding to slightly different viewing angles displayed on a panel can be separated effectively and can be delivered to the right eye and left eye of an observer individually. The diffraction efficiency for individual right and left image in this developed holographic optical element is about 43%, and the contrast ratio of the diffracted images induced by cross talk is larger than 60%. Theoretical analyses show the proposed technique generates good contrast ratio and brightness performance for stereogram application.
