Generation of digital phase-only Fresnel holograms is an important research area in digital holography, as it leads to a substantial simplification of a holographic display system. However, the quality of the reconstructed image of a hologram without the magnitude component is heavily degraded. The problem can be reduced by down-sampling the intensity of an image prior to generating the hologram. The method, referred to as “sampled phase-only hologram” (SPOH) generation, results in reconstructed images that are masked with the pattern of the down-sampling lattice. This paper reports a novel, low complexity method to alleviate this problem through the concept of comb filtering. Results reveal prominent enhancement on the reconstructed image of a SPOH.
