An interlacing technique algorithm is proposed for the synthesis of kinoforms. The conventional iterative methods are quite powerful for optimizing kinoforms, but there is still a large reconstruction error for a quantized kinoform. We suggest the use of a number of subkinoforms interlaced together to synthesize a multikinoform for reconstructing the desired image. The idea of our interlacing technique is to increase the size of a kinoform to reduce the reconstruction error. The first subkinoform is generated from the desired image. Other subkinoforms are generated from the error images between the desired image and the image reconstructed from the previous subkinoforms. A theoretical analysis shows that the reconstruction error will be reduced as the number of subkinoforms is increased. Simulation results show that our interlacing method can reduce the reconstruction error more than do the conventional iterative methods and that the reconstructed image can be improved.
