Paper Abstract

Phase compensation of an aberrating medium can be achieved with image holography and a rotating diffuser in the recon-struction beam to average speckle noise. We show that the image hologram can also be used in the object plane to achieve the same result. Both amplitude and phase holograms can be used in these experiments. The results were achieved with a three-dimensional phase aberration so that longitudinal magnification and depth-of-focus effects limited the quality of the reconstructed image. With three-dimensional aberrators, one must be careful of the exact location of the image plane when recording the hologram and its placement in the reconstruction process.
