Abstract

We propose a 3D/2D convertible screen using a holographic optical element and angular multiplexing method of volume hologram. The proposed screen, named a multiplexed holographic optical element screen (MHOES), is composed of passive optical components, and displaying modes between 3D and 2D modes are converted according to projection directions. In a recording process, the angular multiplexing method by using two reference waves with different incidence angles enables the functions of 3D and 2D screens to be recorded in a single holographic material. Also, in order to avoid the bulky experimental setup due to adopting different projectors for the 3D and 2D modes, the projection part is realized based on a prism. The designed projection part enables the single projector to present 3D on 2D mode, where the 3D and 2D contents are simultaneously displayed in one scene, without active components. The optical characteristics of MHOES are experimentally analyzed, and displaying experiments with a full-color MHOES are presented in order to verify the 3D/2D convertibility and see-through properties.
