Abstract

It is shown how both the amplitude and the phase of a scattered field may be determined by holography. It is estimated that information about details down to about nine wavelengths of light can be obtained by this technique. The result is of importance for unambiguous determination of the three-dimensional structure of semitransparent objects, such as are frequently encountered, for example, in biology.
