Paper Abstract

Digital holography is a powerful tool for noncontact quantitative phase imaging. According to the relative incident angle between the object beam and the reference beam, digital holography is grouped into on-axis and off-axis digital holography, The measurable area is narrow in off-axis digital holography, on-axis digital holography suffers from image blurring. Phase-shifting technique is usually used to obtain the high-quality object image. However, the phase shifting technique requires to record multiple phase-shifted holograms. The most conventional holography configuration requires a separately generated reference and object beams that result in a low stability. The paper presents an One-shot common-path phase-shifting holography based on micro polarizer camera and large-shearing Wollaston Prism. The system employs a commercial micro polarizer camera and a doubly-refractive prism with large shearing. The Wollaston prism separates the incoming beam into two orthogonally polarized components ,brings the reference and object from the two-windows to overlap at the lateral shearing region. The two light beams transmit through the quarter wave plate(QWP) and pixelated micro polarizer array(PMA) camera, QWP is used to transform the orthogonally polarized light into orthogonal circular components, The circular polarizations interfere at CCD after passing through the micro polarizer array. The data captured by PMA camera can be parsed into four phase shifting fringe images corresponding to each direction of the four polarizations. The interpolation method is used to obtain the same resolution as the original image. The phase distribution of the specimen can be retrieved using the four-step algorithm. Finally, experiments are conducted to prove the validity of the proposed method. The results demonstrate the capability and applicability of the system .
