Shaping the future of displays

True 3D displays can be realized using holographic principles, which allows to overcome the limitations of commercial state-of-the-art 3D displays. The 3D image is the result of an interference pattern formed by an array of vastly subwavelength switchable scatterers that interact with a monochromatic light source. Such scatterers can be realized using a variety of tunable optical materials. The design of such scatterers requires to study the electric, magnetic, optical and thermal properties in microphysics simulations. In this master thesis, the interaction of these phenomena is studied using modelling and numerical simulations, focusing on the link between the electrical driving circuit and the overall optical performance of the scatterers.
