We propose and demonstrate a volume holographic printing method for dynamic three-dimensional (3D) display with an expanded space-bandwidth product (SBP) using unconventional angular multiplexing techniques. By wavefront encoding of the 3D scene, with the help of computer-generated holography, the object beam is loaded onto a 2D phase spatial light modulator (SLM) with a limited SBP. The printing method then writes a single hologram through the interference of the object beam with a reference beam as a holographic element (hogel) in the volume holographic polymer. In addition, multiple 3D scenes can be recorded and dynamically reconstructed by angular multiplexing in the same hogel location. The SBP can be increased by two orders of magnitude compared to the conventional holographic printing method, showing the potential to realize a dynamic and high-resolution 3D display.
