Optimizing Parallax Barrier Glasses-free 3D Displays
Printable passive parallax barriers offer an inexpensive and easy way to convert regular 2D LCD displays into glasses-free 3D displays. However, current passive parallax barrier designs require picking a parallax barrier window size that makes major trade-offs between image quality, backlight energy efficiency, and cost. My research aims to bypass this trade-off by designing and analyzing different parallax barrier geometries that could improve the quality of 3D images while providing backlight energy efficiencies comparable to those of current consumer 2D LCD displays.
I spent this past summer interning at Google working on developer tools, APIs, and authorization. I have worked with Prof. Chris Monroe at the University of Maryland on trapped ion quantum computing and photon collection.
