Scientific Applications: Computer synthesis of Holograms for 3-D display


Optical and digital holography are reviewed. The mathematical model and computational techniques of the authors' digital holographic process are discussed, and applications of computer holography are suggested. Computer holograms have been made of three-dimensional objects which give faithful reconstructions, even in white light. A new approach based on point apertures for the image is discussed. Photographs of the images reconstructed from digital holograms are presented
