Paper Abstract

The Fresnel integral is the most often used numerical method for hologram reconstruction in digital holography. However, reconstructed images with this method always include different aberrations because of the neglect of the fourth- and higher-order phase terms in the calculation. The characteristics of these aberrations induced by a Fresnel integral are studied numerically and theoretically. It is found that the quality of the reconstructed image can be degraded seriously by these induced aberrations, especially for small recording distance, and the required experimental conditions of the Fresnel integral used to obtain aberration-neglectable reconstructed images are also studied with Marechal's criteria.
