Computer-Generated Hologrpahy by Non-Convex Optimization

NOnconvex-VOlumetric Computer-Generated Holography (NOVO-CGH) is a new algorithm to generate hologrpahic 3D patterns with an optimization algorithm and a forward model for wave propagation. The cost function can be customized for any particular application (e.g., lithography, neural photostimulation) and can include any known information about the task or the sample such as shape, obstacles, or optical nonlinearity. Details about the algorithm, implementation and performance are in this 2018 paper:
