Abstract
Parallel phase-shifting digital holography is a powerful technique for recording motion picture of holograms with an image sensor and numerically reconstructing the motion picture of the high-quality three-dimensional (3-D) images of the object in a computer. This technique provides high-quality images of light intensity and phase of the object at a time instant at arbitrary depth position. Therefore, the technique achieves 3-D motion-picture imaging of a dynamic object. The technique provides not only large depth of field and high temporal resolution at the same time but also a motion picture of an invisible object. It is difficult for other 3-D imaging techniques to achieve these features of parallel phase-shifting digital holography. The authors review two experiments demonstrating the 3-D imaging by the technique and the features of the technique. One experiment demonstrated the motion-picture 3-D imaging of a minute crystal, sinking down in solution, by refocusing the amplitude images of the crystal. The result was obtained for the first time, to the best of our knowledge. The other demonstrated the motion-picture 3-D imaging of refractive indices of dynamic invisible gas flow by applying the Abel inversion to the phase images of the flow obtained by the technique.
