A hybrid hologram is constructed which combines the flexibility of a computer-generated hologram (CGH) with the high-diffraction efficiency of volume phase holograms. The new hologram is constructed by using a spatially filtered wave front from a conventional 246- × 256-cell CGH as the object wave for the recording of a volume hologram. Theoretical and experimental results show that simultaneous high-diffraction efficiency and reconstruction fidelity are possible.

  10. We also made hologram copies with focal power so that no additional lens was needed for hologram readout. This is another example of adding a large yet easily produced amount of information to a CGH via an optical system.
