Abstract

A 2D/3D switchable autostereoscopic display based on a polymer-stabilized blue-phase liquid crystal (PSBPLC) lens is proposed. The operating principle of the PSBPLC lens is analyzed. We have designed a 2-view 2D/3D switchable autostereoscopic display equipped with a PSBPLC lens on a liquid crystal display panel. The 2D/3D switching lens is polarization-independent and performs fast switching because of the employment of the PSBPLC. Experiment results show that the proposed 2D/3D switchable autostereoscopic display achieves good 2D and 3D performance.
