View-Dependent Displays and the Space of Light Fields

  title={View-Dependent Displays and the Space of Light Fields},
  author={Roarke Horstmeyer and Se Baek Oh and Ramesh Raskar},
  journal={arXiv: Optics},
In this paper we explore how light propagates from thin elements into a volume for viewing. In particular, devices that are typically connected with geometric optics, like parallax barriers, differ in treatment with those that obey physical optics, like holograms. However, the two concepts are often used to achieve the same effect of capturing or displaying a combination of spatial and angular information. This paper attempts to connect the two approaches under a general framework based in ray… 

Towards a unified treatment of 3D display using partially coherent light

This thesis develops a novel method of decomposing a 3D phase space description of light into multiple partially coherent modes, and applies this decomposition to the creation of a more flexible 3D

Widening Viewing Angles of Automultiscopic Displays Using Refractive Inserts

This paper proposes the use of a refractive medium, with a high refractive index, between the display and parallax barriers, and analyzes the consequences of this warp and builds a prototype with a 93% increase in the effective viewing angle.

Comparative analysis on light field reconstruction characteristics of autostereoscopic three-dimensional display technologies

Multi-view technique, integral imaging, and holography are major techniques of autostereoscopic three-dimensional displays. In this presentation, we provide a comparative analysis on image

The Progress of Light‐Field 3‐D Displays

Light‐field displays represent an exciting and promising technology for the future. We introduce the principles of light‐field displays, describe different types of multi‐user light‐field systems,

Linear algebraic theory of partial coherence: continuous fields and measures of partial coherence.

A linear algebraic theory of partial coherence for optical fields of continuous variables is presented and makes it possible to precisely define the concepts of incoherence and coherence in a mathematical way.



Sculpturing of Three-Dimensional Light Fields by Iterative Optimization

The objective of this chapter is to review this exciting field of research by providing the physical basis and procedures, describing special applications, and speculating on future prospects.

Augmenting Light Field to model Wave Optics effects

Two key conclusions are that in free space, the 4D light field completely represents wavefront propagation via rays with real (positive as well as negative) valued radiance and at occluders, a light field composed of light field transformers plus insertion of (ray--based) virtual light sources represents resultant phase and amplitude of wavefronts.

Wigner distributions and how they relate to the light field

In wave optics, the Wigner distribution and its Fourier dual, the ambiguity function, are important tools in optical system simulation and analysis. The light field fulfills a similar role in the

Real-time holographic display: improvements using a multichannel acousto-optic modulator and holographic optical elements

Any practical holographic display device relying on the MIT synthetic aperture approach will require time-bandwidth products far exceeding those available with single channel acousto- optic

A Bidirectional Light Field ‐ Hologram Transform

This paper demonstrates how light fields can be transformed into holograms, and vice versa, and proposes a novel framework to represent visual information that makes joint use of both light fields and holograms as complementary representations.

Real-time foveal light fields for spatial imaging devices

A multiresolution representation for the light field that is independent from the viewers' positions is presented, which allows lazy level-of-detail (LOD) extraction for adaptive frame-rate control and supports continuous LOD rendering to avoid popping artifacts.

Fresnel ping-pong algorithm for two-plane computer-generated hologram display.

This work uses a ping-pong algorithm that bounces back and fourth between the two planes to generate two noiseless image intensities at two depth locations by means of a single computer hologram.

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.

This work presents a model of coherent image formation that strikes a balance between the utility of the light field and the comprehensive predictive power of Maxwell's equations, and synthesizes research in optics and signal processing to formulate, capture, and form images from quasi light fields.

Holography in phase space.

The Leith-Upatnieks off-axis reference hologram is compared with precursors, namely, single-sideband holography, and the phase-space representation of complex amplitudes focuses on similarities between different holographic recording schemes and is particularly useful for investigating the degree of freedom and the space-bandwidth product of optical signals and systems.
