We present an electro-optical apparatus capable of displaying a computer generated hologram
(CGH) in real time. The CGH is calculated by a supercomputer, read from a fast frame buffer, and
transmitted to a high-bandwidth acousto-optic modulator (AOM). Coherent light is modulated by the
AOM and optically processed to produce a three-dimensional image with horizontal parallax.© (1990) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering. Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
