© 2019 by the authors. Image quality metrics are a critical element in the iterative Fourier transform algorithms (IFTAs) for the computer generation of phase-only holograms. Conventional image quality metrics such as root-mean-squared error (RMSE) are sensitive to image content and unable to reflect the perceived image quality accurately. This would have a significant impact on the calculation speed and the quality of the generated hologram. In this work, the structure similarity (SSIM) was proposed as an image quality metric in IFTAs due to its ability to predict the perceived image quality in the presence of the white Gaussian noise and its independence on the image content. This would enable IFTAs to terminate when further iterations would no longer lead to improvement in the perceived image quality. As a result, up to 75% of unnecessary iterations were eliminated by the use of SSIM as the image quality metric.
