A 360° light field 3D display system is presented, which consists of a liquid crystal display, a novel triplet lenses array, and a holographic functional screen (HFS). The mapping relationship among pixels, 3D objects, and viewing positions are investigated. The aberration analysis of the single lens is carried out both in the simulation and the experiment, which shows that it cannot provide an excellent 3D image to the viewers. In order to suppress the aberrations, “the primary aberration theory” and “the damped least-squares method” are used for optical analysis and lens design. A 3D image with aberration correction can be viewed around the proposed display system.
