A method for fast computer hologram generation for long-depth objects using double wavefront recording planes (WRPs) and a graphics-processing unit (GPU) is presented. The WRPs are placed between the object and the hologram plane. Each WRP records the wavefront from a section of the object. Double WRPs can provide a shorter calculation time and enhanced reconstructed image quality compared with a single WRP, especially for long-depth objects. The average generation speed of two WRPs is 2.5 times that of one WRP. The correlation efficiency of the reconstructed layer relative to the original is 94% for two WRPs and 88.3% for one WRP at the close depth layer.
