“Adressable spatial light modulators with as much as possible ideal phase modulation are the precondition for their application in digital holography. An adapted driver electronics for the modulator and a correct knowledge of the modulation behavior can lead to a dynamic phase modulating device with nearly linear characteristic curve and a maximum phase range of 2pi. We show a system for recording and reconstruction of digital holograms applying a spatial light modulator for the optical reconstruction and the digital processing of the holograms. The data of a CCD-camera are taken to a PC and sent to a spatial light modulator. In that sense we realised an analog-digital converter for recording and a digital-analog converter for the optical hologram reconstruction. We discuss the resolution of the reconstruction and their applications, especially possibilities for the manipulation with the reconstructed wave field. ”
