Abstract

We discuss the quantitative location of objects from holographic images when the reconstruction wavelength differs from the recording wavelength. The holographic image equations are interpreted in a way that clarifies the meaning of stereo pairs of holographic images and indicates how backprojection methods can be used in holography to locate objects. Alternative methods involving the production of distortion-free regions in the holographic image field during reconstruction, the use of self-calibrating objects in the object field during recording, and triangulation can be used to locate objects.
