Paper Abstract

A general algorithm is presented for the computer intensive task of data fracture for electron beam written holograms. This process can be used for both open and closed fringe holograms, and is particularly well suited to producing holographic optical elements. The software, specifically written for efficient performance on a micro-processor, is compatible with a standard E-beam lithography system. Recent advances in the memory and processing speed of desk top computers allow this package to achieve performance similar to existing encoding methods residing on main-frame computers. Hardware and software requirement shall be discussed, as well as wavefront encoding accuracy and limitations of the lithography system.
