Author Affiliations +
In this paper, we introduce a digital holographic camera objective based on conventional customer-oriented components for off-axis external white light illumination. The interferometric module based on a modified common-path point diffraction interferometer provides a direct view of the system and admits self-reference and self-interference operation modes. The proposed system is designed for self-emitting and reflective samples. Its modular assemblage provides easy scalability and up-grade possibilities. The operability of the suggested camera system has been proven for both coherent and low-coherent broadband sources, and reconstructed amplitude and phase information of test samples under white light illumination is presented.
