Abstract

A method to retrieve the complex optical fields from the intensity information recorded in only one plane is discussed. The wavefront to be reconstructed is modulated by using a random binary amplitude mask. Wavefronts with a rather large phase depth can be accurately retrieved by using several masks in combination with iterative Fresnel algorithms and without any prior information. The influences of the contrast of the mask and the dynamic range of the detector on the accuracy of the phase retrieval are analyzed.
