A new approach to the numerical reconstruction of wave fronts stored by in-line holography is presented. The new algorithm can achieve good reconstructed results in both unitary and nonunitary systems. The influences of recording distance and noise as well as of digitalization errors on the quality of reconstruction are numerically investigated. The experimental results demonstrate the validity of this new approach.
