The purpose of this thesis is to explore the potential of computer based holography as a means to create autostereoscopic three-dimensional images. The methodology involved research into human three dimensional image perception and the applications of holographic techniques, both conventional and computer based, for achieving threedimensional displays. As part of the research, a physical holography laboratory setup was established, and experimental findings served to validate this approach for threedimensional image visualization. Optical holography experiments were carried out to link the theoretical premise to the practical implementations. The realized computer based approach involved a holographic stereogram technique whereby multiple two dimensional digital images are combined to form a three-dimensional holographic image. The conclusions drawn from the study include a determination of which computer based holography techniques are suited for particular applications, as well as an assessment of the current limitations and challenges experienced in the current technology.
