Abstract

Error diffusion (ED) is a powerful tool for the generation of binary computer-generated holograms (CGH's). Several modifications of the original ED algorithm have been proposed to incorporate special requirements and assumptions present in CGH's. This paper compares different versions of the algorithm for their application to computer-generated holography with respect to reconstruction errors and the overall brightness of the reconstruction.
