Is phase measurement necessary for incoherent holographic 3D imaging? Academic Article uri icon


  • Incoherent digital holography can be used for several applications, among which are high resolution fluorescence microscopy and imaging through a scattering medium. Historically, an incoherent digital hologram has been usually recorded by self-interference systems in which both interfering beams are originated from the same observed object. The self- interference system enables to read the phase distribution of the wavefronts propagating from an object and consequently to decode the 3D location of the object points. In this presentation, we survey several cases in which 3D holographic imaging can be done without the phase information and without two-wave interference.
