The improved single-exposure phase-shifting digital holography using a random-phase reference wave is proposed. The algorithm for obtaining a complex amplitude of an object wave is improved. In the proposed algorithm, the reference wave is treated as not a random-phase but a random-complex amplitude. Therefore, the algorithm uses proper amplitude information of the reference wave. Both numerical simulations and experimental results are given to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
