12 April 1995 Noncoherent polarization method for obtaining holograms

Suggested is a new method to obtain a holograms, based on the use of optically-active-media properties. The light wave scattered by each object point is linearly polarized and transmitted through an optically active medium. The more is the spreading angle of the given wave area, the more becomes its way through the optically active media and consequently the more becomes the rotation angle for its polarization plane. Further the light wave passes through a polarizator. Behind the polarizator a Gabor-zone-lens pattern is formed. Each circle, dark or light is a geometrical place for points of beams with equal angle of polarization plane rotation. Superposition of the Gabor zone lens from each object point is the hologram. Application of this method permits to obtain the holograms without interferometry. So the suggested method allows the use of noncoherent waves for registration of the holograms.
