Paper Abstract

This paper presents a set of design rules for pseudocolor transmission holographic stereo grams illuminated by a point white light source. The three design equations allow calculation of the correct holographic mastering geometry to correct for the chromatic dispersion in the white light-illuminated hologram (H2) and to create the desired color balance in a chosen viewing plane for a multicolor image. The critical design parameters are the tipping of the master hologram (H1) at an angle that is in the plane defined by the final point source and the image plane normal, alteration in the width of the slit images depending on the vertical displacement on H1, and the vertical displacement of the color separations. The practical result of using these design rules is that accurate color composition and true perspective can be achieved along one horizontal viewing line, and precise alignment of the images from color separations of a multicolor image is maintained over an extended vertical viewing range.
