Abstract

We describe a technique that uses complex field holograms to project three-dimensional light patterns. Holographic projection commonly uses phase-only encoding since accurately representing complex holograms using both amplitude and phase spatial light modulators reduces the optical throughput significantly. Here, we use a lossless projection via the generalized phase contrast method to produce the necessary amplitude pattern required for complex field holographic projection. We numerically evaluate the technique and demonstrate high optical throughput with reduced undesired high diffraction orders.
