Abstract

We present the effects of spatiotemporal averaging processes on an estimation of spectral reflectance in color digital holography using speckle illuminations. In this technique, speckle fields emitted from a multimode fiber are used as both a reference wave and a wavefront illuminating an object. The interference patterns of two coherent waves for three wavelengths are recorded as digital holograms on a CCD camera. Speckle fields are changed by vibrating the multimode fiber using a vibrator, and a number of holograms are acquired to average reconstructed images. After performing an averaging process, which we refer to as a temporal averaging process in this study, using images reconstructed from multiple holograms, a spatial averaging process is applied using a smoothing window function. For the estimation of spectral reflectance in reconstructed images, we use the Wiener estimation method. The effects of the averaging processes on color reproducibility are evaluated by a chromaticity diagram, the root-mean-square error, and color differences.
