Abstract

An efficient method for obtaining modified Fresnel holograms of real existing three-dimensional (3-D) scenes illuminated by incoherent white light is presented. To calculate the hologram, the method uses multiple-viewpoint projections of the 3-D scene. However, contrary to other similar methods, this one is able to calculate the Fresnel hologram of the 3-D scene directly rather than calculating a Fourier hologram first. This significantly decreases the amount of calculations needed to obtain the hologram and also reduces the reconstruction errors. The proposed method is first mathematically introduced and then demonstrated by both simulations and experiments.
