A novel, to our knowledge, configuration for the design and fabrication of zero-order computer-generated holograms in which each pixel is split into two centrosymmetric equal-sized regions is proposed and tested. In a manner similar to other approaches this configuration also permits the encoding and the reconstruction of a complex function that exhibits phase as well as amplitude variations by use of a phase-only filter. A detailed mathematical analysis is followed by evaluation of the error of the encoding approach, which is calculated and compared with the error exhibited by other approaches. Computer simulations as well as optical experiments demonstrate the capabilities of this novel configuration.
