Paper Abstract

Digital holography is a useful technique for recording the fully complex field of a wavefront. However, the quality of a reconstructed image of a digital hologram is not good, because it is suffering from speckles. To improve the image quality, a speckle reduction method in digital holography using various rectangular apertures is proposed. Different-sized rectangular apertures are applied for the hologram. Furthermore, the position of the aperture is arbitrary. Owing to the various size and position, the generated speckles have the various sizes and patterns. By averaging the speckle, the speckle noise can be reduced. Some reconstructed images based on the experimental results are shown to confirm the proposed method. For quantitative evaluation, the speckle contrast is also shown.
