Paper Abstract

We propose a technique to shade reconstructed images of electronic holography. Our technique modifies the zone plate technique, which represents a three-dimensional object as an aggregate of object points and zone plates, which generate object points, are summed to calculate a hologram. Our technique is based on the Phong reflection model developed for computer graphics, which assumes that light reflected from an object consists of three components: diffuse, specular, and ambient reflection light. Among these components, only the specular component depends on the position of the camera (or the eye). A holographic reconstructed image changes depending on the viewing direction. Therefore, the specular component changes for different viewing directions. Because light modulated by a zone plate converges to an object point, we assumed that light is redirected differently at each point on the zone plate. Therefore, two-dimensional amplitude modulation of the zone plate would generate an object point that emits light with different intensities in different directions. The proposed two-dimensional amplitude modulation comprises variable and constant modulations: the former one controls the specular component and the latter one controls the diffuse and ambient components. We experimentally verified the proposed technique.
