In this paper, we describe how to emulate 3D wave dynamics on a 2D FPGA-based architecture. The algorithm is based on the Paraxial Helmholtz Equation: which describes the beam propagation through different media with different refractive indices. To solve this wave propagation equation numerically the FPGA-accelerated hardware operates with spatially varying templates. The FPGA-based wave-equation solver is very well parallelizable, so the resulting algorithm will also be amenable to mega-core architectures.
