    • Three-dimensional (3D) display is an ultimate display technology. From the theaters to TVs at home, to naked eye mobile devices, 3-D displays have been gaining popularity in our daily lives.
      This course will systematically introduce state-of-the-art 3D display technologies,outline the physical fundamentals, illustrate the operation principles and outlook the research trends of 3D display technologies. It would cover the following parts:
      1) A brief introduction to the state-of-the-art 3D display technologies and research trends would be presented to the students firstly, then the most fundamental physics of 3D displays, including the 4 main physical 3D depth cues, will be illustrated. Physical 3D depth cues enable the perception of objects in three dimensions and the estimation of distance, and thus serve as the foundation of all 3D display technologies.

      2) Some of the most common display devices such as LCDs and OLEDs will be introduced, in terms of display materials, device structures, working principles and research trends, which would pave the way for the learning of 3D display technologies in the succeeding sections.

      3) Two types of 3D displays based on disparity depth cue would be presented in terms of operating principles and research trends: stereoscopic and autostereoscopic displays. The cause of 3D visual fatigue effects in these displays will be explained based on the knowledge of physical 3D depth cues.

      4) Several quasi-true 3D displays, including holography, integral imaging, volumetric 3D displays,light field displays will be introduced in terms of operating principles and research trends. By presenting multiple physical depth cues to the viewer, quasi-true 3D displays would greatly reduce 3D fatigue and improve the visual experience.

      At the end of the course, students are required to participate in a debate or group presentation regarding “the most promising 3D technology”. Both technical understanding and presentation skills will be evaluated.
