A method of synthesizing computer-generated holograms of real existing objects is proposed that is based on a series of projection images of an incoherently illuminated object recorded from different perspectives. In accordance with the principles of computer tomography, the three-dimensional Fourier spectrum of the object is calculated by use of several projection images. A method of calculating a Fresnel hologram from the three-dimensional Fourier spectrum is proposed. Experimental results in the form of a computer simulation and optical reconstruction are presented.
