Paper Abstract

Previously, a single CCD camera has been used to record holograms of an object while the object is rotated about a single axis to reconstruct a pseudo-3D image, which does not show detailed depth information from all perspectives. To generate a true 3D image, the object has to be rotated through multiple angles and along multiple axes. In this work, to reconstruct a true 3D image including depth information, a die is rotated along two orthogonal axes, and holograms are recorded using a Mach-Zehnder setup, which are subsequently numerically reconstructed. This allows for the generation of multiple images containing phase (i.e., depth) information. These images, when combined, create a true 3D image with depth information which can be exported to a Microsoft® HoloLens for true 3D virtual reality.
