Paper Abstract

The speckle noise is a serious problem in the reconstructed images from kinoforms. A random phase added to the desired image can reduce the dynamic range of its Fourier spectrum, but this involves the speckle noise. In general, isolated first-order zeros in band-limited complex amplitudes are always surrounded by phase change from -π to π. These isolated zeros may cause the speckle noise in kinoform reconstruction. The isolated zeros are lead from a 2π circle of the reconstructed image phase differences. We suggest a new iterative algorithm to optimize the desired image phases in order to reduce the isolated zeros. Experimental results showed that our new iterative algorithm is effective for the speckle reduction of kinoform reconstruction.
