Abstract

The narrow viewing zone angle is one of the problems associated with electronic holography. We propose a technique that enables the ratio of horizontal and vertical resolutions of a spatial light modulator (SLM) to be altered. This technique increases the horizontal resolution of a SLM several times, so that the horizontal viewing zone angle is also increased several times. A SLM illuminated by a slanted point light source array is imaged by a 4f imaging system in which a horizontal slit is located on the Fourier plane. We show that the horizontal resolution was increased four times and that the horizontal viewing zone angle was increased approximately four times.
