Abstract

Pseudoscopic (inverted depth) images that keep a continuous parallax were shown to be possible by use of a double diffraction process intermediated by a slit. One diffraction grating directing light to the slit acts as a wavelength encoder of views, while a second diffraction grating decodes the projected image. The process results in the enlargement of the image under common white light illumination up to infinite magnification at a critical point. We show that this point corresponds to another simple-symmetry object–observer system. Our treatment allows us to explain the experience by just dealing with main ray directions.
