Wireless data transmission systems such as wi-fi or Bluetooth emit coherent light-electromagnetic waves with a precisely known amplitude and phase. Propagating in space, this radiation forms a hologram-a two-dimensional wave front encoding a three-dimensional view of all objects traversed by the light beam. Here we demonstrate a scheme to record this hologram in a phase-coherent fashion across a meter-sized imaging region. We recover three-dimensional views of objects and emitters by feeding the resulting data into digital reconstruction algorithms...

Electrical properties of neuronal processes are extraordinarily complex, dynamic, and, in the general case, impossible to predict in the absence of detailed measurements. To obtain such a measurement one would, ideally, like to be able to monitor electrical subthreshold events as they travel from synapses on distal dendrites and summate at particular locations to initiate action potentials. It is now possible to carry out these measurements at the scale of individual dendritic spines using voltage imaging. In these measurements, the voltage-sensitive probes can be thought of as transmembrane voltmeters with a linear scale, which directly monitor electrical signals...

Holography has extremely extensive applications in conventional optical instruments spanning optical microscopy and imaging, three-dimensional displays and metrology. To integrate holography with modern low-dimensional electronic devices, holograms need to be thinned to a nanometric scale. However, to keep a pronounced phase shift modulation, the thickness of holograms has been generally limited to the optical wavelength scale, which hinders their integration with ultrathin electronic devices. Here, we break this limit and achieve 60 nm holograms using a topological insulator material...

Progress in nanofabrication technology has enabled the development of numerous electron optic elements for enhancing image contrast and manipulating electron wave functions. Here, we describe a modular, self-aligned, amplitude-division electron interferometer in a conventional transmission electron microscope. The interferometer consists of two 45-nm-thick silicon layers separated by 20 μm. This interferometer is fabricated from a single-crystal silicon cantilever on a transmission electron microscope grid by gallium focused-ion-beam milling...

Spherical microphone arrays have been paid increasing attention for their ability to locate a sound source with arbitrary incident angle in three-dimensional space. Low-frequency sound sources are usually located by using spherical near-field acoustic holography. The reconstruction surface and holography surface are conformal surfaces in the conventional sound field transformation based on generalized Fourier transform. When the sound source is on the cylindrical surface, it is difficult to locate by using spherical surface conformal transform...

An apparatus is developed for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to acquire image and spectral data, such as TEM images, electron holograms, and electron energy loss spectra, synchronized with the measurement of the dynamic response of a specimen under an applied alternating current (AC) electric potential (voltage, denoted VAC). From a VAC of frequency f, a shutter pulse signal is generated to open and close a pre-specimen shutter in a base TEM apparatus. A pulse is generated per VAC cycle from the targeted phase Φ to Φ +∆Φ with phase width ∆Φ (∆Φ <2π)...

We propose single-shot multiwavelength digital holography with an extremely large incident angle and show the digital recording of multiple object waves at multiple wavelengths with an angle of more than 40 degrees and no beam combiner to generate interference light. Both the avoidance of the crosstalk between the object waves at different wavelengths and the space-bandwidth extension are simultaneously achieved with a single-shot exposure of a monochromatic image sensor and a reference beam even when the wavelength difference between the object waves is small...

Lensless color microscopy (also called in-line digital color holography) is a recent quantitative 3D imaging method used in several areas including biomedical imaging and microfluidics. By targeting cost-effective and compact designs, the wavelength of the low-end sources used is known only imprecisely, in particular because of their dependence on temperature and power supply voltage. This imprecision is the source of biases during the reconstruction step. An additional source of error is the crosstalk phenomenon, i...

A terahertz (THz) digital holographic imaging system is utilized to investigate natural dehydration processes in three types of biological tissues, including cattle, mutton, and pork. An image reconstruction algorithm is applied to remove the diffraction influence of THz waves and further improve clarity of THz images. From THz images of different biological specimens, distinctive water content as well as dehydration features of adipose and muscle tissues are precisely distinguished. By analyzing THz absorption spectra of these samples, temporal evolution characteristics of the absorbances for adipose and muscle tissues are described and compared in detail...

This paper proposes a quality assessment of focusing criteria for imaging in digital off-axis holography. In the literature, several refocus criteria have been proposed in the past to get the best refocus distance in digital holography. As a general rule, the best focusing plane is determined by the reconstruction distance for which the criterion function presents a maximum or a minimum. To evaluate the robustness of these criteria, 13 criteria are compared with application on both amplitude and phase objects from off-axis holographic data...

Typical methods of automatic estimation of focusing in digital holography calculate every single reconstructed frame to get a critical function and then ascertain the focal plane by finding the extreme value of that function. Here, we propose a digital holographic autofocusing method that computes the focused distance using the first longitudinal difference of the magnitude of the reconstructed image. We demonstrate the proposed method with both numerical simulations and optical experiments of amplitude-contrast and phase-contrast objects...

We propose the method that suppresses the defocus noise optically in the Fresnel incoherent correlation holographic system using a pinhole-polarizer (PP), which is made by punching a pinhole on the linear polarizer. The system configuration of this suggestion is based on the original system with optical-sectioning capability, which is realized by presenting the phase-pinhole on the phase-only spatial light modulator. In our system, the phase-pinhole is replaced with a PP. The replaced component is no longer programmable yet provides an affordable, simple, and light-efficient system configuration...

Sinusoidal phase modulating (SPM) interferometers are used to precisely measure complex light fields with simple interferometric setups. Recently, a generalized lock-in technique has been proposed for optimizing the signal extraction in phase-modulated interferometers. This article shows its applicability in digital holography as well as digital holographic interferometry. A compact homemade setup based on the Michelson interferometer was used to observe the scattering sample surface with a spatial resolution of 32 LP/mm; out-of-plane rotation was measured with a theoretical detection limit of 0...

Fresnel incoherent correlation holography (FINCH) was proposed to break the barrier of spatial incoherent digital holographic imaging and show the potential of super-resolution imaging preferences. We developed FINCH as a compressive sensing modality and reconstruction procedure as an inverse problem in order to realize 3D tomographic imaging. Improved axial resolution is obtained via compressive reconstruction. Reconstruction guarantees and accuracy of the proposed method are discussed. Compared with the real-valued signal operation, the signal-to-noise ratio of the results is increased when reconstructing from the complex-valued hologram obtained from the FINCH system...

A holographic projector utilizes holography techniques. However, there are several barriers to realizing holographic projections. One is deterioration of hologram image quality caused by speckle noise and ringing artifacts. The combination of the random phase-free method and the Gerchberg-Saxton (GS) algorithm has improved the image quality of holograms. However, the GS algorithm requires significant computation time. We propose faster methods for image quality improvement of random phase-free holograms using the characteristics of ringing artifacts...

In this work, approximate three-dimensional structures of microparticles are generated with digital holography using an automated focus method. This is done by stacking a collection of silhouette-like images of a particle reconstructed from a single in-line hologram. The method enables estimation of the particle size in the longitudinal and transverse dimensions. Using the discrete dipole approximation, the method is tested computationally by simulating holograms for a variety of particles and attempting to reconstruct the known three-dimensional structure...

A realistic rendering technique is presented for creating large-scale computer-generated holograms. The technique is based on the polygon-based method, but allows specular curved surfaces to be reconstructed without increasing the number of polygons. In this technique, specular flat surfaces are transformed into curved surfaces. This is achieved by controlling the direction of reflected light, using fragmentary plane waves. An actual large-scale computer-generated hologram is created, and is used to verify the validity and practicality of the technique...

Sandwich structures, in the modern aerospace industry, are more sought after due to their high strength to stiffness ratio resulting in significant weight gains. Optical techniques like time-average holography and shearography are preferred in industries for inspection of huge sandwich and composite panels because of whole-field (full coverage) inspection in a lesser time leading to large savings in cost. These techniques conventionally use sinusoidal frequency sweep to capture the local resonance of defective regions...
