A holographic display makes use of light diffraction to make a virtual three-dimensional image. The holographic display is different from any other type of 3D display as it does not require external aid for the viewer to see the image. A hologram involved recording information regarding the light that appeared from the original scene as scattered in different directions instead of one as done in a photograph. This ensures that the scene can be viewed from different angles as if it still existed.
For years, experts worldwide have been attempting to create a truly holographic display—one that appears realistic to people who see it. Unfortunately, the thought till now has only been limited to sci-fi movies and comic books.
The reality may change as researchers have unveiled a novel high-resolution holographic display, referred to as ‘SolidLight’ The introduction of displays is a massive feat for Holographic Display Market as it is the first-of-its-kind that would bring the sector extremely close to realistic holograms.
The unique high-resolution holographic display’s design came into existence by enclosing High Performance and Proprietary Field Programmable Gate Array, Wall and Display, and electronics controller right at the back of the photonic array. The setup also included nanoparticle polymer glued surface energy relay is a type of box. The front of the box is covered through a sophisticated phase-guide modulation surface. The complete display is attained once sub-modules are placed together to create a large display consisting of 16 x 10k pixels.
The configuration presented by the team is incredible and can generate holograms comprising 2.5 billion pixels along with a density of 10 billion pixels per meter. Holograms were formed by beaming light into the space in front of the display from millions of angles, allowing viewers to perceive displayed entities in all dimensions, giving the holograms the appearance of being three dimensional to the human brain.
The team also noted zero latency and head tracking when it comes to the new technology. Hence, there will be no instances of motion sickness. Further, the researchers also state that they are presently accepting orders for their new platform and that clients are free to use it in any way they see fit. They anticipate that initial users would use it to create holographic, life-sized video walls.
