Paper Abstract

We present here the observation of the Talbot effect in digital holography (DH). A self-imaging phenomena is observed by reconstructing the amplitude of the object wavefield by using different distances and different illumination wavelengths. The numerical reconstruction allows to determine the complex field amplitude at different wavelengths while maintaining constant the reconstruction distance. We investigate on the possibility to build a spectrometer based on the Talbot effect. In particular, the spectrometer proposed in this work can cover the whole visible spectrum ranging from 350nm to 750nm and, from the FWHM of the spectrograms with a resolution of about 20nm
