Abstract:

“A method of holographic reconstruction under partially spatial coherent illumination with different degree of coherence is proposed to suppress speckle noise based on theoretical analysis. The core factor of speckle reduction based on partially spatial coherent light is convolution operation in CGH reconstruction process. Numerical simulations and optical experiments are both performed to verify the proposed theory. The results reconstructed by proposed and traditional method are compared, and the speckle contrasts can be reduced to 0.05 and 0.08 at most in Fresnel and Fraunhofer zone respectively. The image quality is obviously improved. This method can provide further applications for three-dimensional holographic display, beam shaping and coherence degree modulation techniques.”
