Abstract

Self-interference holography is a common technique to record holograms of incoherently illuminated scenes. In this review, we survey the main milestones in the topic of self-interference incoherent digital holography from two main points of view. First, we review the prime architectures of optical hologram recorders over more than 50 years. Second, we discuss some of the key applications of these recorders in the field of imaging in general, and for 3D super-resolution imaging, fluorescence microscopy, partial aperture imaging, seeing through a scattering medium, and spectral imaging in particular. We summarize this overview with a general perspective on this research topic and its prospective directions.
