Abstract

We present a method to improve the resolution of digital holographic images based on angular multiplexing with incoherent beams from two orthogonal polarized components of natural light. Two incoherent subholograms are synchronously recorded by two pairs of incoherent object waves and reference waves with orthogonal polarization states, in which the object is illuminated by two incoherent beams from different directions. The increase in resolution is obtained through phase correction and superposition of two reconstructed object waves. Experimental results show that the resolution and quality of the reconstructed image can be effectively improved.
