Abstract

This paper describes the spatial behavior of the hologram image as a function of the geometric setup used in the recording and reconstruction steps. Given the equation of the holographic image and using paraxial theory and the synthetic division method, values of the longitudinal and lateral magnification are obtained. The location and magnification of the holographic image are found when the distance between the holographic plate and the object is changed. For white light reconstruction and 3-D scenes the effect of color blur can be expressed in terms of the parameters associated with the optical system that forms the image on the hologram and the recording geometry.
