Abstract

Two quantitative criteria are derived to evaluate monocular cues in holographic stereograms. We find that the reconstruction has correct monocular cues when the whole scene is located in a so-called “monocular cues area” with compatible monocular and binocular cues. In contrast, incorrect monocular cues appear when the scene is in the other two areas, namely, the “visible multi-imaging area” and the “lacking information area.” A pupil-function integral imaging algorithm is developed to simulate monocular observation, and a holographic printing system is set up to fabricate full-parallax holographic stereograms. Both simulations and experiments agree with the criteria.
