Abstract

A single-shot digital holography system using an ultra-short pulsed laser is demonstrated to be very effective in suppressing the multiple-scattering noise associated with imaging dynamic targets in highly scattering environments, such as biological tissues and fuel injection systems. A planar off-axis reference wave configuration is used to generate a fixed carrier spatial frequency in the recorded holograms in order to separate coherent signal from incoherent noise in Fourier transformed holograms. The single-shot imaging system does not require averaging between multiple shots and can capture images of transient phenomena, such as the formation of diesel fuel injection sprays, and can overcome the problem of mechanical vibrations for recording holograms in industrial and laboratory environments.
