Super multi-view near-eye display to solve the vergence–accommodation conflict

Published on 2018-11-07T18:56:05Z (GMT) by
A super multi-view (SMV) technique is applied to near-eye displays to solve the vergence–accommodation conflict that causes visual fatigue. The proposed SMV near-eye display employs a high-speed spatial light modulator (SLM), a two-dimensional (2D) light source array, and an imaging optics for each eye. The imaging optics produces a virtual image of the SLM and real images of the light sources to generate a 2D array of viewpoints. The SMV images are generated using a time-multiplexing technique: the multiple light sources sequentially emit light while the SLM synchronously displays corresponding parallax images. A monocular experimental system was constructed using a ferroelectric liquid crystal display and an LED array. A full-parallax SMV image generation with 21 viewpoints was demonstrated and a comparison of full-parallax and horizontal parallax SMV images provided.
