Abstract

Nonlinear effects in holography resulting in ghost images at the reconstruction are studied by the use of Chebyshev polynomials and the results are verified by experiments. Equations are presented for the transmittance and the reconstructed images of a line source. The relationships are useful for the computation of a noise-to-signal ratio as a figure of merit of holographic processes and recording materials.
