Holography is a technique that is used to display objects or scenes in three dimensions. Such three-dimensional (3D) images, or holograms, can be seen with the unassisted eye and are very similar to how humans see the actual environment surrounding them. The concept of 3D telepresence, a real-time dynamic hologram depicting a scene occurring in a different location, has attracted considerable public interest since it was depicted in the original Star Wars film in 1977. However, the lack of… 
Digital holographic display
This paper describes how a Digital Holographic Projector is designed and implemented to project two-dimension virtual images onto the volumetric display media. In this research, we focus on the
Holographic Printing of White-Light Viewable Holograms and Stereograms
The holographic printing followed the two main approaches in this area: i) computation of the holographic fringes by numerical simulation of the interference and encoding the resulting pattern onto a suitable medium for further optical display.
A Review of Dynamic Holographic Three-Dimensional Display: Algorithms, Devices, and Systems
It can be expected that dynamic holographic 3-D display will be able to reconstruct3-D images with real-time refresh rate, full color, wide viewing angle, and large image size, and the system will be commercialized in a near future.

The present fully updatable holographic 3D display system using a holographic stereographic technique with a transparent optical device of poly(methylmethacrylate) doped organic compound of 3-[(4-nitrophenyl)azo]-9H-carbazole-9-ethanol (NACzE) is a good candidate for 3D signage application.
Three-dimensional display based on volume holographic kinoform in photopolymer
Holographic three-dimensional (3D) display is a promising technique since it can present a 3D scene with all characteristics of real-world objects. Volume holography provides big data capacity for
Volume holography using gold-nanoparticle-doped photopolymers for 3D display
Although we view the physical world around us in 3D, traditional displays show only 2D images lacking depth information. The development of 3D display technologies would enormously benefit many
Projection-type see-through holographic three-dimensional display
A projection-type holographic three-dimensional display is shown, in which a digitally designed holographic optical element and a digital holographic projection technique are combined to increase both factors at the same time.

Diffraction-specific fringe computation for electro-holography
This thesis describes the development, implementation, and analysis of diffraction-specific computation, an approach that considers the reconstruction process rather than the interference process in optical holography, to increase the speed of holographic computation for real-time three-dimensional electro-holographic (holovideo) displays.
