Kan-Dai Digital Holo-Studio was established to promote the development of computer holography. Unlike conventional optical holography, computer holography creates three-dimensional images by synthesizing interference patterns using computers. Research on algorithms used to numerically synthesize interference patterns and light waves from an object that are the source data on interference patterns is indispensable for developing computer holography. However, if the technology to produce interference patterns is not available, the images are not reproduced or observed even if an algorithm is studied.
The significance of the research on computer holography will diminish if researchers cannot see the actual images, even if they are interested in computer holography. High-definition computer-generated holograms (HD-CGH) synthesized by computer holography are completely different from conventional three-dimensional images. Therefore, some artists may wish to create such images as works of art; however, no method to generate these images has been available thus far.
Kan-Dai Digital Holo-Studio was established for both researchers and artists who wish to work on computer holography. The purpose of Kan-Dai Digital Holo-Studio is to provide a printing method for HD-CGHs for researchers and artists as well as a method for the artists to create works of art.
･Printing interference patterns
We provide the service of printing original interference patterns synthesized by users. No research contract is required; users have almost all of the rights to the interference patterns.
Research contracts may be required.
Kan-Dai Digital Holo-Studio was established as part of the “Computer Holography and Massive Data Processing Project” supported by the “Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT)-Supported Program for the Strategic Research Foundation at Private Universities”. The Project is also supported by the Organization for Research and Development of Innovative Science and Technology (ORDIST) of Kansai University.
