Novel Method for the Creation of Autostereoscopic Images
Lenticular images are 3 dimensional autostereoscopic images that can be seen directly without any optical aids. To date those images are produced by dividing numerous pictures in stripes, mixing those stripes in a defined way and then presenting them through a lenticular grid (Interlace method). Unfortunately this method provides only a limited 3D- effect for the efficient viewing angle is very small. Furthermore images produced by the Interlace method have often a poor image quality. <br><br>
To overcome those disadvantages, we offer a new technology for fabrication 3D autostereoscopic images. The new procedure – Virtual Lenticular Rendering (VLR) - for fabrication of 3D-Images creates photographs (Parallax-Panoramagram) directly by only one rendering step based on radiation pattern construction. Therefore a virtual lenticular grid is created by computer and attached with a synchronized refraction index. This allows generating the specific illustration elements and their exact position as well as the concrete surface texture in an enhanced way.<br><br>
<li>Procedure is independent from lenticular grid size and lense shape</li>
<li>Enhanced 3 dimensional illustration</li>
<li>Possibility to use novel lenticular grid</li>
<li>Creation of lenticular images in high quality in only one rendering step by computer</li>

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
