A color-reconstruction method for electroholography is proposed in which three colored reference lights, namely, red, green, and blue light-emitting diodes, simultaneously illuminate one hologram plane. Three colored light-emitting diodes are placed at the apexes of a small right-angled triangle. Inasmuch as there is a small gap between consecutive light axes, three colored diffraction lights can be piled up at the place where a three-dimensional image is focused. In our experiment we used a high-resolution liquid-crystal display panel as a spatial light modulator with a pixel pitch of 10 μm and a resolution of 1400×1050. The system clearly reconstructed a colored moving image including a mixture of colors, for example, cyan, yellow, magenta, and white.
