An autostereoscopic display based on two-layer lenticular lenses is proposed. The two-layer lenticular lenses include one-layer conventional lenticular lenses and additional one-layer concentrating-light lenticular lenses. Two prototypes of the proposed and conventional autostereoscopic displays are developed. At the optimum three- dimensional view distance, the luminance distribution of the prototypes along the horizontal direction is measured. By calculating the luminance distribution, the crosstalk of the prototypes is obtained. Compared with the conventional autostereoscopic display, the proposed autostereoscopic display has less crosstalk, a wider view angle, and higher efficiency of light utilization.
