In off-axis digital holography, e.g., for detecting and imaging ultrafast phenomena, the interference region is confined to a limited region due to the short extent of the light pulse along the propagation axis. Therefore, the detected area of the object wavefront is limited. A recording method for enlarging the detected area in the above case is proposed in this Letter, in which multiple interferences between the object and the reference waves are obtained by spatial angular multiplexing. Experimental results demonstrate the validity of this method.
