Abstract

A new approach to the design of computer-generated holograms makes optimal use of the available device resolution. An iterative search algorithm minimizes an error criterion by directly manipulating the binary hologram and observing the effect on the desired reconstruction. Several measures of error and efficiency useful in assessing the optimality of digital holograms are defined. Methods for designing digital holograms that are based on projections and error diffusion are presented as established techniques for comparison to direct binary search.
