Digital Holography System

Holography, formed from the Greek words Holo (whole), and graphe (write), is a method of recording both the intensity and phase information of a wave-field. Digital holography system consists of laser light source, interferometer and computer.

The digital revolution has seen the photochemical processing of conventional holography replaced with CCD arrays and high-speed numerical computation giving rise to digital holography, from which digital holographic microscopy is derived.

In digital holography the recorded hologram is subsequently reconstructed computationally by using numerical algorithms to provide direct access to both the amplitude and phase information of the object.

The system consists of: laser light source, interferometer and computer.

Applications: cell imaging, single-cell research.
