Paper Abstract

We can record digitally-designed information of three-dimensional (3D) objects or optical elements on a holographic photosensitive material by using wavefront printing technology. But the hologram data generated from the digitally-designed information are very huge and there are often the occurrences of the unnecessary bidirectional communications. To solve this problem, we studied on a special-purpose computer for wavefront printing technology. This technique consists of generating the light-ray information from digitally-designed information of 3D objects, converting the light-ray information to the wavefront information and generating the hologram data locally from the wavefront information in interaction. In this paper, we designed the emulator of the special-purpose computer for wavefront printing technology and obtained the amount of information (the number of bits) required for the circuit by comparing the 3D images reconstructed from the holograms generated by the emulator. As a result, the amount of information of the wavefront information converted from the light-ray information most affected the quality of the 3D images reconstructed from the holograms generated by the emulator and we can design the emulator that can reduce the noise component from those 3D images. In the future, we will design the special-purpose computer for wavefront printing technology by using hardware description language and implement that special-purpose computer on a programmable logic device such as a field programmable gate array.
