ABSTRACT Digitally synthetic holograms of surface model objects are investigated for reconstructing three-dimensional objects with shade and texture. The objects in the proposed techniques are composed of planar surfaces, and a property function defined for each surface provides shape and texture. The field emitted from each surface is independently calculated by a method based on rotational transformation of the property function by use of a fast Fourier transform (FFT) and totaled on the hologram. This technique has led to a reduction in computational cost: FFT operation is required only once for calculating a surface. In addition, another technique based on a theoretical model of the brightness of the reconstructed surfaces enables us to shade the surface of a reconstructed object as designed. Optical reconstructions of holograms synthesized by the proposed techniques are demonstrated.

    ABSTRACT: We propose an algorithm based on fully computed holographic stereogram for calculating full-parallax computer-generated holograms (CGHs) with accurate depth cues. The proposed method integrates point source algorithm and holographic stereogram based algorithm to reconstruct the three-dimensional (3D) scenes. Precise accommodation cue and occlusion effect can be created, and computer graphics rendering techniques can be employed in the CGH generation to enhance the image fidelity. Optical experiments have been performed using a spatial light modulator (SLM) and a fabricated high-resolution hologram, the results show that our proposed algorithm can perform quality reconstructions of 3D scenes with arbitrary depth information.

    ABSTRACT: A holographic rendering algorithm using a layer-based structure with angular tiling supports view-dependent shading and accommodation cues. This approach also has the advantages of rapid computation speed and visual reduction of layer gap artefacts compared to other approaches. Holograms rendered with this algorithm are displayed using an SLM to demonstrate view-dependent shading and occlusion.

    ABSTRACT: A hologram display technique that provides speckle-free and shaded reconstructed images is proposed. A three-dimensional (3D) object is composed of object points, which are divided into multiple object point groups displayed in a time-sequential manner. In each object point group, an array of object points are sparsely separated, so that interference does not occur between them. Each object point group is generated by displaying a two-dimensional (2D) array of zone plates on a high-speed spatial light modulator (SLM). The amplitude distribution of the zone plates is modulated two-dimensionally to control the angular intensity distribution of light emitted from the object points to shade reconstructed images. The SLM generates multiple binary images illuminated by different light powers to represent 2D modulated zone plates in a time-sequential manner. A Digital micromirror device (DMD) was used as the high-speed SLM. The resolution was 1,024 × 768, and the frame rate was 22.727 kHz. Each object point group consists of 16 × 24 object points. The reconstructed image consists of 16 × 8 object point groups to obtain a total of 256 × 192 object points. Eight binary images represented each object point group. The frame rate for 3D image generation was 22.2 Hz.
