Abstract

In this work, a numerical method to enhance the contrast of intensity hologram reconstructions of digital lensless holographic microscopy (DLHM) is presented. The method manipulates the in-line hologram and reference images through mathematical operations between them; additionally, a sharpening operation, functionalized in terms of the parameters of the recording setup, is applied to the said images. The preprocessing of the recorded images produces a modified in-line hologram and a reference wave image from which an intensity reconstruction with a 25% improvement of its contrast, with respect to the conventional reconstruction procedure, is achieved. The method is illustrated with intensity reconstructions of a hologram of a monolayer of polystyrene spheres 1.09 µm in diameter. Finally, the preprocessing method is validated with a modeled hologram, successfully applied to holograms of the section of the head a Drosophila melanogaster fly and its results are contrasted with those obtained via bright-field microscopy.
