Investigation Of Real-Time Optical Scanning Holography, Bradley D. Duncan Jun 1991

Investigation Of Real-Time Optical Scanning Holography, Bradley D. Duncan

Electro-Optics and Photonics Faculty Publications

Real-time holographic recording using an optical heterodyne scanning technique was proposed by Poon in 1985. The first part of this dissertation provides a detailed theoretical treatment of the technique, based on a Gaussian beam analysis. Topics to be addressed include the derivations of the optical transfer function (OTF) and impulse response of the scanning holographic recording system, reconstructed image resolution and magnification, methods of carrier frequency hologram generation and experimental verification of the recording technique based on careful measurements of a hologram corresponding to a simple transmissive slit. Furthermore, computer simulations are presented pertaining to the incoherent nature of the ...
