Abstract

The performance of broadband volume holographic imaging system in terms of depth selectivity is investigated. The mechanism for depth resolution degradation is explained. In order to overcome this resolution degradation, a novel imaging device, the confocal-rainbow volume holographic imaging system, is proposed. Modeling and experimental validation of the performance of this novel imaging system indicates that depth resolution <16μm is achievable. The lateral resolution of this device is <2.5μm along a field of view of 300μm×100μm.
