Digital holographic tomography of cylindrical objects with a conical mirror
Miguel León-Rodríguez, Amalia Martínez-García, Juan A Rayas, and Juan Antonio Pantoja-Mayo


This paper presents a panoramic holographic reconstruction of a cylindrical object with a conical mirror. This panoramic holographic system has the advantage to obtain 3D information for 360 degrees view in one-shot. We use the phase-shifting method to determine the amplitude and phase simultaneously. This work demonstrates the feasibility of refocusing at different radii inside of the object. Amplitude and phase distributions are presented to validate the tomographic simulation results. These results give the confidence to implement the holographic system to study different quasi-cylindrical objects of importance in areas such as materials engineering and biological science. © Anita Publications.
