Liquid Crystal Shutters for Stereoscopic Vision and 3D Dual View Application

Abstract : In this thesis the main objectives were to improve the liquid crystal shutters and to develop a stereoscopic vision application called 3D Dual View. The vision quality of a 3D system based on active glasses is direct related to the performance of the liquid crystal shutters. There are a lot of parameters that plays an important role in the quality of 3D glasses. Thus, efforts were concentrated in the organization of the liquid crystal molecules between the substrates and in the liquid crystal itself. We studied different configurations of shutters using nematic liquid crystal and ferroelectric liquid crystal (smectic), with and without polymer. Furthermore, the ferroelectric samples were analyzed using a full optical snapshot matrix Mueller polarimenter made by UBO (Université de Bretagne Occidentale) in partnership with Télécom-Bretagne. The second part was the development of 3D Dual View System. It is a stereoscopic vision system based on a mixture of active and passive 3D solution which displays a 3D image that can be viewed simultaneously by two spectators, but from different perspectives. To allow two different points-of-view of a scene or object in three dimensions, the system has to multiplex four images, one pair to form the 3D image for one viewer in one perspective and the other pair for the second viewer in other perspective. We describe different techniques to multiplex and demultiplex the video streams taking into account the physiological aspects, market, image quality and the crosstalk. The crosstalk between the images leads to an effect called ghosting, which the viewer sees a low intensity image that belongs to the other viewer. Then, we also characterized the ghosting effect (crosstalk) and proposed an algorithm of ghostbusting to compensate it.
