Abstract

Here, a new method for calculating the computer-generated holograms of three-dimensional (3D) objects is presented along with a review of current techniques. The method, the planar layers method (PLM), is established on the idea of representing 3D objects in discrete planar layers perpendicular to the observation plane, then calculating the total far field pattern by summing up the far field patterns of each layer. Simulation results, computational complexity, and error comparisons reveal that this new method can be used to calculate far field patterns-hence, the holograms-of computer-synthesized objects very efficiently.
