Description

Abstract We report fast computation of computer-generated holograms (CGHs) using Xeon Phi coprocessors, which have massively x86-based processors on one chip, recently released by Intel. CGHs can generate arbitrary light wavefronts, and therefore, are promising technology for many applications: for example, three-dimensional displays, diffractive optical elements, and the generation of arbitrary beams. CGHs incur enormous computational cost. In this paper, we describe the implementations of several CG... Title of program: Xeon-Phi-CGH Catalogue Id: AETM_v1_0 Nature of problem We describe how to program fast computation of computer-generated holograms (CGHs) and diffraction calculation using Xeon Phi coprocessors, released by Intel. We describe the implementations of several CGH generating algorithms on the Xeon Phi, and the comparisons in terms of the performance and the ease of programming between the Xeon Phi, a CPU and graphics processing unit (GPU). Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AETM_v1_0; Xeon-Phi-CGH; 10.1016/j.cpc.2014.06.010 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
