In this paper, we investigate the dual direction overdriving method to accelerate both the 3D-on and 3D-off time of the lenticular liquid crystal (LC) lens. The experimental results indicated that the response time (τ3D-on and τ3D-off) was successfully improved for a factor of 4 as a thick (60 μm cell gap) LC lens. The LC lens was also implemented on an auto-stereoscopic display to yield fast 2D/3D switching ability.
