Abstract

We describe various techniques to synthesize three types of computer-generated hologram (CGH): the Fresnel–Fourier CGH, the Fresnel CGH, and the image CGH. These holograms are synthesized by fusing multiple perspective views of a computer-generated scene. An initial hologram is generated in the computer as a Fourier hologram. Then it can be converted to either a Fresnel or an image hologram by computing the desired wave propagation and imitating an interference process of optical holography. By illuminating the CGH, a 3D image of the objects is constructed. Computer simulations and experimental results underline the performance of the suggested techniques.
