We propose a simple gradation representation method for a reconstructed three-dimensional (3-D) image without controlling the brightness of the reference light. In the proposed method, we use multiple bit planes comprised of binary-weighted computer-generated holograms (CGHs) with various light transmittances. Binary-weighted CGH is generated by changing the white in the conventional binary CGH to gray. The light transmittance of a binary-weighted CGH is less than that of a conventional binary CGH. The object points of a 3-D object are assigned to multiple bit planes according to the gray level of the object points. The multiple bit planes are displayed sequentially in a time-division multiplex manner. Consequently, the proposed method realizes a gradation representation of a reconstructed 3-D object.
