Double-step Fresnel diffraction (DSF) is an efficient diffraction calculation in terms of the amount of usage memory and calculation time. This paper describes band-limited DSF, which will be useful for large computer-generated holograms (CGHs) and gigapixel digital holography, mitigating the aliasing noise of the DSF. As the application, we demonstrate a CGH generation with nearly 8K × 4K pixels from texture and depth maps of a three-dimensional scene captured by a depth camera.
