Digital holography is combined with a pulse-laser electroholographic system for a real-time three-dimensional display. Owing to the one-dimensional characteristics of the Bragg-regime acousto-optic spatial-light modulator, vertical parallax cannot be generated from the acoustic signal propagating along the fan-shaped beam direction of the incident laser. To obtain a proper interference pattern, we attach a horizontal slit to the confocal lens system for recording the fringe data, significantly reducing the bandwidth of the vertical fringe data. When the bandwidth-reduced fringe data are displayed by use of a pulse-laser electroholographic system, the clarity and the quality of the image are found to be appreciably improved.
