Incoherent digital holography can be used for several applications, among which are high resolution fluorescence microscopy and imaging through a scattering medium. Historically, an incoherent digital hologram has been usually recorded by self-interference systems in which both interfering beams are originated from the same observed object. The self-interference system enables to read the phase distribution of the wavefronts propagating from an object and consequently to decode the 3D location of the object points. In this presentation, we survey several cases in which 3D holographic imaging can be done without the phase information and without two-wave interference.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
