We propose a method for an estimation of wavelength difference using scale adjustment in two- wavelength digital holographic interferometry. To estimate wavelength difference, two holograms recorded with different wavelengths are reconstructed on the basis of the Fresnel diffraction integral, and pixel sizes in the reconstruction plane, which depend on the wavelength in recording hologram, are analyzed. In the analysis, a zero-padding method and an intensity correlation function are used to adjust pixel sizes in the reconstruction plane and then obtain a wavelength difference given by a difference between the pixel sizes. Theoretical predictions and experimental results are shown to indicate the usefulness of the proposed method in this paper.
