Fermi Surfaces in Stereo3D and Java3D
It is possible to see the Fermi surface in stereo 3D with
the help of a pair of 3D shutter glasses and a Java3D program we wrote.
If you don't have 3D shutter glasses, the following pictures
should give you an idea of the Fermi surfaces in stereo 3D.
However, with shutter glasses you'll be able to view the Fermi surface in
full screen. Also, the Java3D code allows
interaction as well.
Example : Fermi surface of Chromium :
Band 3 : yellow (small lenses inside violet surface)
Band 4 : violet
Band 5 : bluish green
The optimal separation between the left and the right pictures
varies from person to person and
depends very much on the setting of your graphics display. So, please
choose one that's suitable for you, starting from the smallest pictures.
To see the stereo effect, move your eye closer to the monitor until
the left image of your left eye overlap with the right image of your right
eye (the images are out of focus; you should see 3 images, the center
one is overlapped). Then try to focus on the overlapped
image, and slowly move away from
the screen until the overlapped image is clear, you should see a 3D image
that "pops out" of the screen.
You may want to change the resolution of your monitor to adjust
the size of the pictures for most comfortable stereo viewing.
