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.

    • "The calculation patterns of each polygon are added up, and the whole procedure has the potential to be faster because the number of necessary basic units (from point to polygon) is much less. Having the similar difficulty as a point-based method, the polygon method has to deal with the occlusion issue through ray tracing41424344. This slows down the calculation speed. "

    ABSTRACT: Realization of a 3D image holographic display supporting real-time interaction requires fast actions in data uploading, hologram calculation, and image projection. These three key elements will be reviewed and discussed, while algorithms of rapid hologram calculation will be presented with the corresponding results. Our vision of interactive holographic 3D displays will be discussed.

    • "The other important requirement set upon the CGHs is the photorealistic reconstruction, which exhibits features such as view-dependent occlusion, multiple reflections, refraction and shadowing, transparency and texture mapping, Research Article Vol. 55, No. 3 / January 20 2016 / Applied Optics A135 glossiness, etc. Encoding of these features in the CGH additionally increases the computational cost, and that is why this research area attracts a lot of attention31323334353637383940. Spatial partitioning of the hologram combined with sampled directional data allows the software acceleration of the CGH computation. "

    ABSTRACT: A new phase-added stereogram algorithm for accelerated computation of holograms from a point cloud model is proposed. The algorithm relies on the hologram segmentation, sampling of directional information, and usage of the fast Fourier transform with a finer grid in the spatial frequency domain than is provided by the segment size. The algorithm gives improved quality of reconstruction due to new phase compensation introduced in the segment fringe patterns. The result is finer beam steering leading to high peak intensity and a large peak signal-to-noise ratio in reconstruction. The feasibility of the algorithm is checked by the generation of 3D contents for a color wavefront printer.

    • "However, they also assumed Poynting vector for negative spatial spectrums along z axis on a rotated destination plane could not have a projection on a rotated destination plane with conditions of Im[w] ¼ 0 and w r 4 0. Matsushima et al. [6] noticed a fold in the spectrum in the case of large angle rotation, but they ignored its effect using large sampling interval. Matsushima et al. [7] [9] and Nicolar [8] reported holographic microscopy for an rotated object and compared it with theoretical expectation. Recently , Chang et al. [10] proposed diffraction calculation between rotated planes with variable sampling rates. "

    ABSTRACT: A novel method is proposed for simulating exact light propagation between rotated planes using non-uniform sampling and angular spectrum method. Angular spectrum method (ASM) was widely used for simulating light diffraction between rotated planes using uniform sampling and interpolation of positive spatial frequency spectrums along z axis on a rotated destination plane which is an approximation valid only for large sampling interval on a source plane and for small rotation angle of a destination plane. To simulate exact wave propagation between rotated planes independent on sampling interval on a source plane or rotation angle of a destination plane, we applied non-uniform sampling to angular spectrum method. In the proposed method, we can produce simulation results between rotated planes with high accuracy for any sampling interval on a source plane or for any rotated angle. &
