Abstract

Conventional methods of quadrature phase-shifting holography require two holograms and either intensity distribution of the reference wave or that of the object wave to reconstruct an original object without the zero order and the twin-image noise in an on-axis holographic recording setup. We present a technique called two-step-only quadrature phase-shifting holography in which solely two quadrature-phase holograms are required. Neither reference-wave intensity nor an object-wave intensity measurement is needed in the technique.
