Abstract

Digital light-in-flight recording by holography is a promising technique for observing a propagating ultrashort light pulse as a motion picture. A typical reconstruction process of digital light-in-flight recording by holography, we extract holograms without considering the relationship between the lateral size of the extracted hologram (sub-hologram) and the size of an area where the propagating ultrashort light pulse and an image sensor overlap. The area records the image of the ultrashort light pulse at a certain moment. In this study, by considering the size of the small interference fringe image, we assessed the influence of the lateral size of the hologram on the reconstructed image. We defined the size of the area in which the interference fringe image at a moment is recorded. Then, we examined the reconstructed images by changing the lateral size of the sub-hologram. As a result, we found that the lateral size of the hologram does not affect the size of the reconstructed image but the spatial resolution of the reconstructed images.
