Abstract

A technique to alter the ratio of the horizontal and vertical resolution of a spatial light modulator has been proposed. This technique increases the horizontal resolution by a factor of K and decreases the vertical resolution by a factor of 1/K. The proposed technique increases the horizontal viewing angle by a factor of approximately K, although a conjugate image appeared. In the present study, the resolution redistribution technique is modified to eliminate the conjugate image. The height of a horizontal slit placed on the Fourier plane of a 4f imaging system used for the resolution redistribution system is reduced by half. The horizontal resolution becomes K times larger, and the vertical resolution becomes 1/2K times smaller. The improved technique generates only the object wave. We demonstrated fourfold enlargement of the horizontal resolution to increase the horizontal viewing angle by approximately four times without generating the conjugate image.
