Abstract

A method for expanding the measurement range of low-coherence digital holography up to several times longer than the coherence length is proposed. The method was implemented with a multireflection reference mirror composed of partially and highly reflective mirrors, in conjunction with the Fourier transform method with spatial filtering for single-shot complex amplitude imaging, making it useful for observing a moving and deforming object. One of the features of the reference arm is that the measurement range is simply controlled by adjusting the position and angle of the highly reflective mirror. The measurement of objects with a general curved shape and a large step height was demonstrated.
