Holographic images computation are now 100 x faster
Holography is hindered by slow computational algorithms and the need for high-powered computers. Now, a method that enables the fast computation of holograms with a fully realistic depth perception—even on a desktop computer—has been developed by researchers from the Data Storage Institute of A*STAR in Singapore.
The algorithm developed by Pan and his co-workers, simplifies the calculations based on one, large 3D look-up table. The computation time of a hologram using the team’s new algorithm now takes less than half a second; previously it took approximately 50 seconds; next step will be real time... The original scientific paper was published in July 2009 in OpticsExpress and is stored in OpticsInfoBase here.
