In this paper, we propose an approach, new to our knowledge, to effectively generate and reconstruct the resolution-enhanced computer-generated hologram (CGH) of three-dimensional (3-D) objects with a significantly reduced in memory size novel look-up table (N-LUT) by taking into account a relationship between the pixel pitch and reconstruction distance of the hologram pattern. In the proposed method, a CGH pattern composed of shifted versions of the principal fringe patterns (PFPs) with a short pixel pitch can be reconstructed just by using the CGH generated with a much longer pixel pitch by controll ing the hologram reconstruction distance. Accordingly, the corresponding N-LUT memory size required for resolution-enhanced hologram patterns can be significantly reduced in the proposed method. To confirm the feasibility of the proposed method, experiments are carried out and the results are discussed.
