This paper reviews two of the most active 3-D imaging technologies such as light-field and electroholographic displays, comparing their characteristics and predicting their future perspectives.
The nature of vergence–accommodation conflict problem in head-mounted displays and the associated visual artifacts are summarized, followed by a comprehensive review of the various technical approaches toward rendering proper focus cues in head-mounted displays, for both virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications.
This paper presents the fundamentals of integral photography and describes the main contributions to its development. Attention is focused also on the recent advances in both macroscopic and microscopic 3-D imaging.
This paper overviews integral 3-D capturing methods and analyzes integral 3-D imaging technology at its capturing and displaying stages. Approaches for capturing high-resolution integral imaging information are also discussed.
This review paper describes a passive multidimensional optical sensing and imaging system (MOSIS), which can be used for 3-D visualization, seeing through obscurations, material inspection, 3-D endoscopy, and 3-D object recognition from microscales to long-range imaging. The system utilizes time and space multiplexing, polarimetric, temporal, photon flux, and multispectral information to reconstruct multidimensionally integrated scenes.
This paper presents an autostereoscopic light-field 3-D display architecture, rendering, and calibration method to provide realistic 3-D visual effects. The developed prototype has almost seamless parallax with a resolution comparable to the conventional multiview displays.
This paper reviews the most effective techniques for numerically manipulating digital holograms to achieve improved image reconstructions. The topics of extended focus imaging (EFI), synthesis of 3-D holographic scenes, and enhanced 3-D display are also discussed throughout.
Imaging techniques using phase, polarization, fluorescence, and spectra based on digital holography are presented in this paper. These techniques are developed for multimodal imaging based on the combination of digital holography and other optical microscopies.
This paper provides an overview of the development of compact digital holographic microscopes and their applications in 3-D cell imaging, cell parameter extraction, and cell classification for potential automated disease identification.
This paper presents the evolution of light-field 3-D displays, in particular those which employ holographic technology, and their application to 3-D touch interface for intuitive 3-D human–computer interaction.
This paper summarizes the progress toward a first fully transparent, flexible, and scalable thin-film image sensor and reviews lensless imaging approaches.
