abstract

The display of 3D images containing all the depth cues required by the human vision system can be achieved using a reconfigurable Computer Generated Hologram (CGH) with high pixel count. Giga-pixel scale displays or spatial light modulators are required in order to form directly viewable 3-D images of 0.5m in size. A new Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) solution, Active Tiling (AT)1, has been developed by the authors to replay giga-pixel scale CGHs at video refresh rates. This has overcome a key bottleneck preventing commercial development of electro-holography to date. At the heart of an AT system is a set of replication optics which produces multiple images of an electrically addressed Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) on an optically addressed spatial light modulator (OASLM). Solutions employed within electronic holography will be discussed. A holographic 3D display system using a 4 channel Active Tiling modulator with a new replay optics system has demonstrated directly viewable 3-D images and animations from 100 Mega-pixel CGH data. This provided viewing of both horizontal parallax only (HPO) and full parallax 3-D images up to 140mm in size.
