Since the diffraction angle is limited by the spatial resolution of the spatial light modulator (SLM), the size of the optical image of the lensless holographic projection with a SLM is very small. Using a divergent spherical beam to illuminate a SLM is an effective method to physically increase the projection angle; nevertheless, the sampling ranges of the existing Fresnel diffraction algorithms with fast Fourier transform keep unchanged. In this paper, a double-sampling Fresnel diffraction algorithm to enlarge the sampling range is proposed when using a divergent spherical beam to illuminate a SLM, and the magnification of the optical image is realized in lensless holographic projection. The hologram can be easily optimized by the Gerschberg–Saxton algorithm. Simulation and experimental results with enlarged optical image are presented successfully.
