Title (EN) POLARIZING REFLECTION AND TRANSMISSION, THREE DIMENSIONAL IMAGE CREATION AND DISPLAY SYSTEMS
(FR) SYSTEMES DE CREATION ET D'AFFICHAGE D'IMAGES TRIDIMENSIONNELLES A REFLEXION ET TRANSMISSION POLARISANTES
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and method of displaying images of entire scenes in apparent three dimensions; whereby a means of projection (201) projects images with light onto a multi-layered composite transparent sheet polarizing screen (202), the dimensions of whose optically active layers are determined by the intensity and the mixture of polarization states of the projected light. The images (501, 502, 503, 504, 505) appear to be three dimensional.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et un procédé permettant d'afficher des images de scènes entières apparemment en trois dimensions, procédé selon lequel un moyen de projection (201) projette avec de la lumière des images sur un écran polarisant (202) constitué d'une feuille transparente composite multicouches comportant des couches optiquement actives dont les dimensions sont déterminées par l'intensité et le mélange des états de polarisation de la lumière projectée. Les images (501, 502, 503, 504, 505) semblent être en trois dimensions.
