Abstract

A new aperture-synthesis approach in a pulsed digital holography system for obtaining superresolution is proposed and experimentally demonstrated in which, with only a single laser pulse divided into two trains of subpulses, angular multiplexing can be applied to both the reference beam for different carrier frequency and the object beam for off-axis and on-axis illuminations. Furthermore, in the recording plane, multiple subholograms covering different spatial frequency ranges diffracted from the object can be recorded in a single frame of a CCD. Our analysis and results show that the resolution of the reconstructed image synthesized upon the reconstructed complex amplitudes of the subholograms can be improved effectively.
