Abstract

A holographic three-dimensional (3D) display is a recognized and ideal 3D display technology. In the field of holographic research, cylindrical holography with the merit of 360° field of view (FOV) has recently become a hot issue, as it naturally solves the problem of limited FOV in planar holography. The recently proposed approximate phase compensation (APC) method successfully obtains larger FOV and fast generation of segment cylindrical hologram (SCH) in the visible light band. However, the FOV of SCH remains limited due to its intrinsic limitations, and, to our best knowledge, the issue has not been effectively addressed. In this paper, the restricted conditions are first analyzed for the generation of SCH by the APC method. Then, an FOV expansion method is proposed for realizing a large FOV holographic display by gapless splicing of multi-SCH. The proposed method can successfully obtain larger FOV cylindrical holograms and effectively eliminate the splicing gaps; its effectiveness is verified by the results of numerical simulation and optical experiments. Therefore, the proposed method can effectively solve the FOV limitation problem of the APC method for the generation of SCH in the visible band, realize a large FOV 3D display, and provide a useful reference for holographic 3D display.
