Abstract

Self-interference digital holography (SIDH) is actively studied because the hologram acquisition under the incoherent illumination condition is available. The key component in this system is wavefront modulating optics, which modulates an incoming object wave into two different wavefront curvatures. In this Letter, the geometric-phase hologram lens is introduced in the SIDH system to perform as a polarization-sensitive wavefront modulator and a single-path beam splitter. This special optics has several features, such as high transparency, a modulation efficiency up to 99%, a thinness of a few millimeters, and a flat structure. The demonstration system is devised, and the numerical reconstruction results from an acquired complex hologram are presented.
