Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a theoretical model describing the real images replayed from finite aperture Fraunhofer holograms of two identical co-planar objects. We have solved numerically the resulting image equations for the case of two circular disc objects, and compare our predictions with experimental measurements from in-line Fraunhofer holograms recorded on silver-halide emulsions. Three measurement criteria for calculating the disc diameters and separation are described, and their errors discussed. It is found experimentally that a criterion based on average intensity results in the smallest errors due to its insensitivity to the effects of coherent noise.
