Abstract

We propose time-division based color electroholography with a one-chip RGB Light Emitting Diode (LED) and a low-priced synchronizing controller. In electroholography, although color reconstruction methods via time-division have already been proposed, the methods require an LCD with a high refresh rate and output signals from the LCD for synchronizing the RGB reference lights such as laser sources, which consequently increase the development cost. Instead of using such an LCD, the proposed method is capable of using a general LCD panel with a normal refresh rate of 60 Hz. In addition, the LCD panel used in the proposed method does not require the output signals from the LCD. Instead, we generated synchronized signals using an external controller developed by a low-priced one-chip microprocessor, and, use a one-chip RGB LED instead of lasers as the RGB reference lights. The one-chip LED allows us to decrease the development cost and to facilitate optical-axis alignment. Using this method, we observed a multi-color 3D reconstructed movie at a frame rate of 20 Hz.
