A novel backlight module that integrates dual layer strip patterned organic light emitting diode (DLSP-OLED) for 2D/3D switchable display was demonstrated. The DLSP-OLED functions as a parallax barrier in 3D mode and a planar light source in 2D mode. The results indicated that the backlight module with a thin form factor ( $\sim$ 1.1 mm) can achieve uniformity of 91% in 2D mode, and increased optical efficiency by a factor of 2.8 with a crosstalk of less than 6% in 3D mode, compared with the conventional 2D/3D switchable display. A fast switching rate ( $<$ 1 ms) with simple operation can eliminate the visual fatigue caused by flicker during the switching. In addition, this configuration can function localized 3D display by modulating the DLSP-OLED individually.
