Abstract

Resolution of the reconstructed image is evaluated for the reflection hologram recorded by use of a slit. Sharp and deep images are obtained because the resolution in the vertical direction is higher than that of the conventional reflection holograms and is independent of the size of the illuminating light source. In contrast, the resolution in the horizontal direction depends on the light-source size in this direction. The optimum source size is discussed in connection with the balance in the resolutions for both directions. A method for obtaining the vertical parallax by use of multiple slits is proposed, and application of the proposed hologram to the heads-up display is also demonstrated.
