A superresolution method for interference fringes obtained by parallel four-step phase-shifting digital holography is proposed. A complex amplitude distribution of an object wave is derived from a recorded hologram by parallel phase-shifting interferometry using two pixels without any interpolation procedures. Multiple distributions are derived by changing one of the two pixels when conducting phase-shifting interferometry. The angular spectrum distribution of the object wave is obtained by both the Fourier transforms and synthesis of the spectrum distribution from the Fourier-transformed images in the spatial frequency domain. Available space bandwidth is extended to half of that of an image sensor.
