For smaller near-eye images, and for technical applications involving the direct manipulation of the phase of light, we compute true holograms on-the-fly, and display them using state-of-the-art liquid crystal microdisplays.
For these digital computer generated holograms (CGHs) we provide the software to translate application-level content into the necessary phase patterns. We also provide LCoS hardware, coupling optics, and high-speed electronics to inject these CGH images into optical systems such as telescopes, microscopes, and head-mounted displays.
Just as for our analog holograms, CGH content can be created using familiar 3D design and rendering environments and media assets. We can also encode video feeds, medical and engineering data formats such as DICOM, and Zernike polynomials for arbitrary optical wavefront manipulation.
For more details, please see our online CGH PowerPoint.
We realized there is a lot of confusion regarding holographic image resolution and the number of pixels on an SLM. Please see our explanation below.
