The MIT holographic video display can be converted to color by illuminating the 3 acoustic channels of the acousto-optic modulator (AOM) with laser light corresponding to the red, green, and blue parts of the visible spectrum. The wavelengths selected are 633 nm (red), 532 nm (green), and 442 nm (blue). Since the AOM is operated in the Bragg regime, each wavelength is diffracted over a different angular range, resulting in a final image in which the three color primaries do not overlap. This…

Results achieved using a data-parallel supercomputer to compute horizontal-parallax- only holographic patterns containing 6 megasamples indicate that an image comprised of 10,000 points with arbitrary brightness (grayscale) can be computed in under one second.

In-Situ Swelling For Holographic Color Control

Deliberate variations of the emulsion thickness between holographic exposures and reconstruction produce a range of output wavelengths from a fixed exposure wavelength, a technique known as
