Two-dimensional Fourier transform kinoforms can be calculated by
use of a discrete Fourier transform. It is well known that the
off-axis reconstruction has lower reconstruction error than the on-axis
one. Here we make what to our knowledge is a new analysis on the
effect of phase quantization in the Fourier domain. We find that
the kinoform reconstruction error changes periodically according to the
position of the desired image when a large dummy area is added. The
error dependence of quantized kinoform reconstruction is simulated on
the position of the desired image by use of the iterative dummy area
method and the iterative interlacing technique.
