About this book

This book covers basic- to expert-level applications in computer holography, a strong candidate for the ultimate 3D display technology. The computer holography developed in the course of the past decade represents the basis of wave optics. Accordingly, the book presents the basic theory of wave optics and practical techniques for handling wave fields by means of the fast Fourier transform. Numerical techniques based on polygons, as well as mask-based techniques, are also presented for calculating the optical fields of virtual 3D models with occlusion processing. The book subsequently describes simulation techniques for very large-scale optical fields, and addresses the basics and concrete applications of simulation, offering a valuable resource for readers who need to employ it in the context of developing optical devices. To aid in comprehension, the main content is complemented by numerous examples of optical fields and photographs of reconstructed 3D images.

About the authors

Kyoji Matsushima received his diploma and Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Osaka City University in Japan and subsequently joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Kansai University as a research assistant in 1990; he is currently a Professor at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the same university. Throughout his career, Professor Matsushima has been an active researcher in the field of optics and lasers, and has been working in the area of computer-generated holograms for over two decades. In 2013, he won the Charles E. Ives Journal Award from the Journal of Electronic Imaging. His current research interests include 3D imaging based on computer holography and numerical simulations in wave optics.
