Conventional integral-imaging systems utilize lenslet arrays with fixed focal lengths and aperture sizes. We propose a time-multiplexed integral-imaging method that enhances both the depth of focus and the resolution of a three-dimensional image by displaying it with an array of lenslets with different focal lengths and aperture sizes. The nonuniform lenslet parameters (focal lengths and aperture sizes) for our method are calculated. Our theoretical analysis indicates that significant improvements in both depth of focus and resolution can be obtained with the proposed technique.
