Abstract

Among the important features of holographic displays are the wide viewing angles and the full color of the reconstructed images. The present work focuses on achievement of both features. We propose an increased-viewing-angle full-color holographic display using two tiled phase-only spatial light modulators (SLMs), a 4f concave mirrors system, and a temporal-spatial multiplexing method. The 4f optical system consists of two concave mirrors and serves to increase the viewing angle. A temporal-spatial multiplexing synchronization control (TSMSC) method is developed to achieve a full-color image and to remove the color crosstalk of the image. We calculate RGB phase-only holograms of a computer-generated color pyramid by using a slice-based Fresnel diffraction algorithm. The experimental results indicate that the proposed display system is feasible to reconstruct a full-color holographic 3D image with a viewing angle of 12.8°, which is about 3.8 times wider than the viewing angle formed by a single SLM.
