Paper Abstract

In line Frauhofer holography with collimated recording and spherical reconstruction beams can eliminate the primary spherical aberration. The off-axis primary aberrations with this mode are described. Rayleigh's quarter wavelength rule is then used to set the aberration limited size resolution. General solutions are obtained and the particular example of Ruby recording and HeNe reconstruction lasers is described. The problem was suggested to the author by E. N. Leith during an earlier SPIE conference presentation.
