A three-dimensional holographic image is deteriorated due to quantization of the phase in the hologram. As in two-dimensional Fourier holograms, the deterioration is exhibited as a superposition of false images. However, in the three-dimensional case, the false images fall at depth positions other than the plane of the image to which they correspond. If far out of focus, these false images are harmless.
