Paper Abstract

Various reconstruction algorithms are discussed in the context of a recently proposed self-reference holographic imaging technique. These algorithms are applied to obtain high resolution images of laser illuminated objects with a strong specular backscattered component. Examples of linear and nonlinear image reconstruction algorithms are presented with performance approaching optimal bounds. Expressions are obtained allowing determination of the dependence of the quality of reconstructed image on target reflectivities and the selection of illuminating wavefronts. A critical evaluation of results indicates the need for more complete modeling to derive system requirements and limitations.
