Acceleration of the calculation speed of computer-generated holograms using the sparsity of the holographic fringe pattern for a 3D object.


In computer-generated hologram (CGH) calculations, a diffraction pattern needs to be calculated from all points of a 3-D object, which requires a heavy computational cost. In this paper, we propose a novel fast computer-generated hologram calculation method using sparse fast Fourier transform. The proposed method consists of two steps. First, the sparse dominant signals of CGHs are measured by calculating a wavefront on a virtual plane between the object and the CGH plane. Second, the wavefront on CGH plane is calculated by using the measured sparsity with sparse Fresnel diffraction. Experimental results proved that the proposed method is much faster than existing works while it preserving the visual quality.
