Paper Abstract

Coherence Holography is an unconventional holography technique, where a computer generated hologram is illuminated by spatially incoherent light and the recorded object is reconstructed by the 3D distribution of a spatial coherence function. Because of its unique capability of controlling and synthesizing spatial coherence of quasi-monochromatic optical fields in 3D space, coherence holography has been applied for spatial coherence tomography, profilometry, and the generation of coherence vortices. In this paper, we experimentally demonstrate three particular spatial coherence functions by using coherence holography, and study the propagation characteristic of the coherence functions.
