We propose a simple gradation representation method using a binary-weighted computer-generated hologram (CGH) to be displayed on a high-speed spatial light modulator that can be controlled by the pulse-width modulation technique. The proposed method uses multiple bit planes comprising binary-weighted CGHs with various pulse widths. The object points of a three-dimensional (3D) object are assigned to multiple bit planes according to their gray levels. The bit planes are sequentially displayed in a time-division-multiplexed manner. Consequently, the proposed method realizes a gradation representation of a reconstructed 3D object.
