Multiview three-dimensional (3D) displays can project the correct perspectives of a 3D image in many spatial directions simultaneously. They provide a 3D stereoscopic experience to many viewers at the same time with full motion parallax and do not require special glasses or eye tracking. None of the leading multiview 3D solutions is particularly well suited to mobile devices (watches, mobile phones or tablets), which require the combination of a thin, portable form factor, a high spatial… 
Foveated glasses-free 3D display with ultrawide field of view via a large-scale 2D-metagrating complex

A 3D display using MEMS-scanning-mechanism-based light homogeneous emitting (LHE) approach is presented and it is demonstrated that the display can directly generate an autostereoscopic 3D image without the need for optical lenses or gratings.
Optical devices: 3D without the glasses
A team working at Hewlett-Packard's laboratories in Palo Alto has developed a new multiview 3D display that is particularly well suited to mobile devices, which require thin displays with high spatial resolution and a wide-angle view zone.
A large-scale diffractive glasses-free 3D display
Glasses-free 3D displays have a long history. The first suggestion of a stereoscope was by Wheatstone in the mid-19th century,1 followed by various autostereoscopic technologies in the late 19th and
Projection-Type Multiview Holographic Three-Dimensional Display Using a Single Spatial Light Modulator and a Directional Diffractive Device
In this paper, we propose a projection-type multiview holographic three-dimensional (3-D) display using a single spatial light modulator (SLM) and a directional diffractive device, where a phase-only
Demonstration of a low-crosstalk super multi-view light field display with natural depth cues and smooth motion parallax.
A super multi-view light field display with the vertically-collimated programmable directional backlight and the light control module and the VC-PDB and the LCM is demonstrated, which can provide precisely detectable accommodation depth for human monocular vision.
HoloFlex: A Flexible Light-Field Smartphone with a Microlens Array and a P-OLED Touchscreen
We present HoloFlex, a 3D flexible smartphone featuring a light-field display consisting of a high-resolution P-OLED display and an array of 16,640 microlenses. HoloFlex allows mobile users to


3D image quality of 200-inch glasses-free 3D display system
We have proposed a glasses-free three-dimensional (3D) display for displaying 3D images on a large screen using multi-projectors and an optical screen consisting of a special diffuser film with a
Partial pixels: a three-dimensional diffractive display architecture
The partial pixel architecture that permits the realization of three-dimensional (3-D) displays that are functionally equivalent to a real-time holographic stereogram is described and can be generalized for the implementation of full-color displays and displays having two-dimensional motion parallax.
Multi-projection of lenticular displays to construct a 256-view super multi-view display.
A new super multi-view (SMV) display system that enables the number of views to be increased is proposed that was used to construct a SMV display having 256 views.
Spatioangular Prefiltering for Multiview 3D Displays
This paper analyzes the reproduction of light fields on multiview 3D displays and proposes a light field reconstruction method which performs light field antialiasing as well as angular sharpening to compensate for the nonideal response of the 3D display.
Layered 3D: tomographic image synthesis for attenuation-based light field and high dynamic range displays
Optimization of tomographic techniques for image synthesis on displays composed of compact volumes of light-attenuating material allows optimal construction of high dynamic range displays, confirming existing heuristics and providing the first extension to multiple, disjoint layers.
Antialiasing for Automultiscopic 3 D Displays
The frequency analysis of light fields is extended to address some of the major issues in 3D cinematography for automultiscopic displays and an anti-aliasing technique is presented by combining a reconstruction and a display prefilter.

Autostereoscopic 3D displays
Most of the perceptual cues that humans use to visualize the world's 3D structure are available in 2D projections, and all 3D display technologies (stereoscopic displays) provide at least stereo parallax.
Holographic three-dimensional telepresence using large-area photorefractive polymer
3D telepresence is demonstrated by taking multiple images from one location and transmitting the information via Ethernet to another location where the hologram is printed with the quasi-real-time dynamic 3D display.
Light field rendering
This paper describes a sampled representation for light fields that allows for both efficient creation and display of inward and outward looking views, and describes a compression system that is able to compress the light fields generated by more than a factor of 100:1 with very little loss of fidelity.
