Moiré effect in cylindrical objects

  • Vladimir Saveljev


The moiré effect in single-walled cylindrical objects (gridshells) is investigated. The surface of such an object is a rolled-up periodic grating (mesh). Analytical formulae are obtained for the period of the moiré patterns, which depends particularly on the direction of the wavevector of the grating. The experiments confirm the theory. The results can be applied to nanoparticles and to three-dimensional autostereoscopic displays.
