Tailored Acoustic Holograms with Phased Arrays

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


Advances in phased array of transducers (PATs) allow for precise control of each element's phase and amplitude and can consist of hundreds of transducers. The widely adopted Gerchberg-Saxton type of algorithms do not provide sufficient accuracy for complex control tasks like formation of detailed holograms as they perform well only for a small number of control points with respect to the number of transducers. Here we present an efficient PATs amplitude and phase solver based on the iterative first-order gradient optimization of the user defined loss function (APGO). We demonstrate high resolution hologram reconstruction when the number of control points is 25 times the number of transducers.
