Abstract: front page image
(EN)An achromatic polarization switch (APS) acts on linear polarized light to provide orthogonal polarized output states over a range of visible wavelengths. In a first switching state, the APS is operable to pass light of a first polarization state therethrough. In a second switching state, the APS is operable to transform light passing therethrough to a substantially orthogonal second polarization state. Used in conjunction with orthogonal analyzing eyewear, left and right eye images are time-sequentially modulated in orthogonal polarization states by the APS to yield a stereoscopic 3D image sensation.
(FR)Commutateur de polarisation achromatique agissant sur de la lumière polarisée linéaire pour fournir des états de sortie polarisée orthogonale sur une gamme de longueurs d'onde visibles, permettant le passage de lumière ayant un premier état de polarisation. Dans un second état de polarisation, le commutateur transforme la lumière qui le traverse vers un second état de polarisation sensiblement orthogonale. Si on utilise le commutateur en combinaison avec des lunettes d'analyse orthogonale, les images de l'oeil gauche et de l'oeil droit subissent une modulation chronologique dans des états de polarisation orthogonale, par le biais du commutateur, ce qui donne une sensation d'image stéréoscopique 3D.
