We propose an optical pseudoscopic to orthoscopic conversion method for integral imaging using a lens-array holographic optical element (LAHOE), which solves the pseudoscopic problem. The LAHOE reconstructs an array of diverging spherical waves when a probe wave with the phase-conjugated condition is imposed on it, while an array of converging spherical waves is reconstructed in ordinary reconstruction. For given pseudoscopic elemental images, the array of the diverging spherical waves integrates the orthoscopic three-dimensional images without a distortion. The principle of the proposed method is verified by the experiments of displaying the integral imaging on the LAHOE using computer generated and optically acquired elemental images.
