We present a new holographic concept, named six-pack holography (6PH), in which we compress six off-axis holograms into a single multiplexed off-axis hologram without loss of magnification or resolution. The multiplexed hologram contains straight off-axis fringes with six different orientations, and can be generated optically or digitally. We show that since the six different complex wavefronts do not overlap in the spatial frequency domain, they can be fully reconstructed. 6PH allows more than…

First experimental realization of six-pack holography and its application to dynamic synthetic aperture superresolution.

6PH is utilized to increase resolution in dynamic synthetic aperture imaging, where each of the six optically compressed off-axis holograms encodes a different spatial frequency range of the imaged sample, yielding 1.62 × resolution enhancement.

Off-axis digital holographic multiplexing for rapid wavefront acquisition and processing

The theory, various optical systems, applications, and perspectives of the field of off-axis holographic multiplexing are reviewed, with the goal of stimulating its further development.

Six-pack holographic imaging for dynamic rejection of out-of-focus objects.

Six-pack holography is adapted to reject out-of-focus objects in dynamic samples, using a single camera exposure and without any scanning, further improving the system sectioning capabilities.

An efficiency score is defined to analyze the various possible architectures and compare the signal-to-noise ratio and the mean squared error obtained using each of them, thus determining the optimal holographic method.

Doubling the acquisition rate by spatial multiplexing of holograms in coherent sparse coded aperture correlation holography.

This work proposes a motionless method to spatially multiplex more than one hologram in a single camera exposure and effectively increases the acquisition rate of dynamic scenes and the holographic data compression by two-fold.

Single-shot digital multiplexed holography for the measurement of deep shapes.

It is shown that the illumination pattern provides the required frequency separation of all object wavefronts in transverse frequency space, which is necessary for hologram demultiplexing, and numerical generation of longitudinal scanning function (LSF) is possible, which has large measurement range, high axial resolution, and small side lobes.

Spatial bandwidth-optimized compression of image plane off-axis holograms with image and video codecs.

Both lossy and lossless IP-OAH compression approaches that are based on conventional compression codecs, but optimized with regard to bandwidth of the signal are presented.

Single-shot slightly off-axis digital holographic microscopy with add-on module based on beamsplitter cube.

The proposed approach provides an optimized use of the imaging system, in terms of the space-bandwidth product, in comparison with off-axis configuration; allows the analysis of fast-dynamic events, owing to its single-shot capability when compared with on-axis arrangement; and becomes easily implementable in conventional white-light microscopes for upgrading them into holographic microscopeopes for QPI.

Projection multiplexing for enhanced acquisition speed in holographic tomography

In holographic tomography (HT), the 3D refractive index distribution within weakly-scattering, phase-only biological object is retrieved. This key property of the technique is one of its most

Object wave field extraction in off-axis holography by clipping its frequency components.

An algorithm is proposed that reduces the number of pixels needed for an object's wave field trimming, reducing notably its processing time without significant changes in the quality of the reconstructed image.
