Abstract

The method to record an incoherent Fourier hologram is proposed. The interference patterns in the dual channel rotational shearing interferometer are obtained as the figure of the cosine and the sine transformation in the vertical and the horizontal polarization, respectively. The proposed optical system is simple without spatial light modulators or mechanical phase shifting devices. The experiment, in which the letter “A” displayed on a liquid crystal display with a blue LED backlight was used as an object, confirms the proposed method to obtain an incoherent Fourier hologram.
