We propose a volumetric display based on holographic parallel optical access and two-photon excitation using a computer-generated hologram displayed on a liquid crystal spatial light modulator and a multilayer fluorescent screen. The holographic parallel optical access increased the number of voxels of the volumetric image per unit time. This approach increased the total input energy to the volumetric display, that is, the total fluorescence power, because the maximum energy incident at a point in the multilayer fluorescent screen is limited by the damage threshold. The multilayer fluorescent screen was newly developed to display colored voxels. The thin layer construction of the multilayer fluorescent screen minimized the axial length of the voxels. A volumetric display with only blue-green voxels and a volumetric display with both blue-green and red voxels were demonstrated.
