Three-dimensional Display with Data Manipulation based on Digital Holography

  • Osamu Matoba


In recent years, the two-dimensional display system has been enthusiatically developed to create HDTV or more. A three-dimensional (3-D) display system is still difficult for commerical products due to the large amount of data that must be handled or reconstructed 3-D information. Holography is one of the best solutions for 3-D display. For 3-D display application, digital holography is an available technique to develop holographic 3-D display systems as digital information [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15].

In digital holograhy, an intensity distribution recorded directly by an imaging device consists of an object intensity pattern, a reference intensity pattern and an interference pattern that includes complex amplitude of a 3-D object. The recorded intensity distribution is called a digital hologram. Digital holography has been applied in many fields such as measurement, 3-D display and information processing. Digital format of recorded data can be...
