Ph.D. Tomoko Hashida is part of the team that developed a new type of 3D volume display system. Using a programmable 2D ultraviolet light source and stacked glass plates with UV sensitive dyes, they have been successful in creating 3D geometric shapes and objects. The system does not require special glasses or other viewing aids. Multi-colored dyes are available now and higher densities are possible with further development. The geometric patterns seem to float effortlessly in the brightly lit white display cube.
