Applications of Digital Holography: From Microscopy to 3D-Television

T. Kreis


The paper gives an overview of the applications of digital holography based on the one hand on CCD-recording, computer storage, and numerical reconstruction of the wave
fields, and on the other hand on numerical calculation of computer generated holograms (CGH) and the transfer of these CGHs to spatial light modulators (SLM) for optical
reconstruction of the wave fields. The first mentioned type of digital holography finds applications in digital holographic microscopy, particle analysis, and interferometric form and deformation measurement, while the second type constitutes the basis for holographic 3D TV. The space-bandwidth-problem occuring in this context is addressed and first partial solutions are presented.
