Abstract

A simple estimation method of the relative phase shift for generalized phase-shifting digital holography based on a statistical method is proposed. This method consists of a selection procedure of an optimum cost function and a simple root-finding procedure. The value and sign of the relative phase shift are determined using the coefficient and the solution of the optimum cost function. The complex field of an object wave is obtained using the estimated relative phase shift. The proposed method lifts the typical restriction on the range of the phase shift due to the phase ambiguity problem. Computer simulations and optical experiments are performed to verify the proposed method.
