Lecture Title(s)

Computer-generated hologram for 3D display: The holography is know as the ideal 3D imaging technology. However, it requires special equipments and knowledge to record the optical hologram. On the other hand, the computer-generated hologram can be easily synthesized with a personal computer. In this lecture, we start from basics of optical holography then move to computer-generated holograms. Output devices are also introduced such as the holographic video display and the holographic fringe printer.
