In reconstruction of in-line recorded holograms, zero-order and conjugate images appear on the same physical location as the object image. Here we propose a method, new to our knowledge, to separate the object image from the others by using two quadrature phase-shifted holograms. The method uses the Hartley transform and a phase retrieval type of algorithm on the difference hologram.
