We propose a new digital holography method using an ultra-broadband light source and a chromatic phase-shifter. The chromatic phase-shifter gives different frequency shifts for respective spectral frequencies so that the spectrum of the light reflected from the object can be measured to reveal the spectral property of the object, and arbitrary selection of signals in the temporal frequency domain enables single- and multi-wavelength measurements with wide dynamic range. A theoretical analysis, computer simulations, and optical experiments were performed to verify the advantages of the proposed method.
