Abstract

A refocusing criterion adapted to red–green–blue (RGB) digital holographic microscopy is established. It is applicable for both amplitude and phase objects. This color criterion is based on a monochromatic criterion, using the integrated modulus amplitude. Simulated RGB holograms show the value of having color information, even for colorless samples; in addition, the position of the focus plane along the optical axis is determined more accurately. Simulations take into account both the numerical apertures of lenses and noise during the holographic process. We also implement an algorithm exponentially reducing the computation time required for detecting the focus plane. The method is validated on experimental holograms.
