We investigate the viewing angle enhancement of a lenticular three-dimensional (3D) display with a triplet lens array. The theoretical limitations of the viewing angle and view number of the lenticular 3D display with the triplet lens array are analyzed numerically. For this, the genetic-algorithm-based design method of the triplet lens is developed. We show that a lenticular 3D display with viewing angle of 120 ° and 144 views without interview cross talk can be realized with the use of an optimally designed triplet lens array.
