Abstract

A real-time full-color phase-only holographic display system generates holograms of 3D objects. The system includes a 3D object formed by voxels, an internet-based transmission capability that transmits the object information to the server, a real-time hologram generation unit, and a holographic display unit with incoherent illumination. The server calculates three phase holograms for RGB components using multiple GPUs. The resultant phase holograms are saved into an RGB bitmap image and loaded to the phase-only spatial light modulators (SLMs). SLMs are illuminated uniformly by LEDs, and reconstructed waves are aligned and overlapped by using high precision optics and stages. Experimental results are satisfactory.
