Abstract

A new autofocusing algorithm for digital holography is proposed based on the eigenvalues of the images reconstructed at different distances in the measurement volume. An image quality metric evaluated based on the distribution of its eigenvalues is compared in function of the reconstruction distance to identify the location of the focal plane. The proposed automatic focal plane detection algorithm is capable of working with amplitude objects, phase objects, and mixed type objects. A performance comparison of the proposed algorithm with some previously reported representative algorithms is provided. The simulation and experimental results demonstrate the practical applicability of the proposed algorithm.
