Twin removal in digital holography
using diffuse illumination.
Optics Letters, 34 (23).
A method to numerically remove the twin image for inline digital holography, using multiple digital holograms,
is discussed. Each individual hologram is recorded by using a statistically independent speckle field
to illuminate the object. If the holograms are recorded in this manner and then numerically reconstructed,
the twin image appears as a different speckle pattern in each of the reconstructions. By performing specklereduction
techniques the presence of the twin image can be greatly reduced. A theoretical model is developed,
and experimental results are presented that validate this approach. We show experimentally that the
dc object intensity term can also be removed by using this technique.
